Monochromatic Challenge at Guylou’s Inimitability

Are you ready for another challenge??? The wonderfully, talented owner & artist of Guylou's Inimitability is our host for this weeks Monochromatic Challenge! This was most definitely a challenge for me as I have never done one (specifically anyway) before. I may be able to find one or two projects that have monochromatic tendencies but never on purpose. I don't know why, because I have always liked the look of them.
Anyway, when G (as we call her) posted the theme I panicked. (And I so did not want to have a mess up like I did last challenge…did you notice??? The color scheme had greens and purples and I was the only DT member who did greens and pinks. I swear when I printed out the palette my colors looked pink :} So sorry Bren!!!!)
I was so nevrous I even emailed G to ask her advice on what I had planned and then emailed her a copy to make sure the card I made would work. I know, I know I am completely crazy!
Now onto the card made. I knew I needed a wedding card for Jerry, at work, he got married on the 22nd of May. So the image, I knew was going to be "William and Kate", and since their colors are white and black I figured it would be perfect card for a monochrome card. So I was on my way until I started going through my papers and could not come up with patterns I liked enough for a wedding card. So I started going through my digital scrapbooking kits and found two that I really liked and thought would be perfect for Jerry! So here it is:

I used both copic and prismas to do my coloring and used embossing on the is a close up and the inside:

I really liked how this came out. And this post is of course after the wedding..and Jerry has informed me that they both loved it. glad they did!

We have a few "special surprises" going on with this challenge not only do you have a chance at winning a digi or two, a guest designer spot BUT a chance at a year PDF subscription to "Through The Craftroom Door". They were kind enough to sponsor this challenge! Check out all the info here. And don't forget to check out the wonderful DT (they are listed on the left) and our guest designer, Shelly Schmidt, blogs to see what they came up with! The challenge will end on the 16 at 10 est. Go forth and have some fun!

Gina L said...

Kim, you crack me up. Haven't you discovered yet that we're a pretty laid back group and G is not the type to freak about small "changes" the rules by her rather crazy DT? You're funny. And your card is beautiful. Very elegant!

Gina L said...

Oh, the girls are going to jump on me for calling them crazy. LOL

LOL, wait a minute - we ARE crazy aren't we?!
Kim - this is a gorgeous wedding card- I just love the fabulous papers and gorgeous sparkle in her dress and on the flowers - you did a fantastic job on the inside that any Hallmark would drool over! Kudos!

Brenda said...

What are you calling me CRAZY!!?? LOL Kim, I laughed out loud at "Go forth and have some fun."
Your card is great. I totally get the freaking out about if it follows the rules or not. I often get caught up in the coloring and forget what the rules are!
I love the papers you used, love the glitter, the inside is beautiful!!
hugs, Bren
