Dream Valley Challenge 17 - monochrome.

Hi, guys! It's October already, and time for another Dream Valley Challenge. We had lots of great entries for our 'buttons' challenge - this week it's all about monochrome, so experiment with shades of one colour (except for skin and hair!) and see what you come up with!

Our lovely sponsor One Stop Card Crafts is offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher for their online store!

I made a Christmas card:

I used a scallopped Grand Nestie for the card base, and the next size down for the blue card, and a smaller plain circle for the paper.

The cute image is Lili of the Valley coloured in all the shades in the blue pack of Spectrum Noirs. I also used 99 (from the essentials set) and 133, 135 and 142 from the Skin Colours set.

I slathered glitter over the snow spatters and the ground and also on the snowflakes, which were cut with a Woodware punch. The paper is Nitwits 'Heavenly' collection, and the ribbon is from stash. The sentiment is also LotV.

I really like making these semi-circular cards, they're good for boys' cards because there isn't enough room for girlie flowers and lace!

Go over to Dream Valley and have a look at what the talented DT has done - it's amazing how many gorgeous variations there can be on one theme! We'd all be delighted if you could join in, too!

Have a great week, and thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
