Dream Valley Challenges DT - Monochrome

For my DT card for The Squirrel and the Fox please scroll down to the previous post. Ta.

Good afternoon, all! I hope you're having a happy and relaxing Sunday afternoon!

Our new challenge at Dream Valley is up and running, and it's a great colour challenge: Monochrome - use shades of just one colour (apart from skin and hair if you're colouring a person.) There are some lovely examples from the DT - and the amazing Mel has once again created something awesome from paper, you really must go to the Challenge blog and see it!

Our sponsor is the fab Robyn's Fetish and a lucky winner can choose 5 digis from the shop!

I already had the beautiful Gilded Christmas Dove and I made a Christmas hanging:

Here is a close-up:

I coloured with Spectrum Noirs, GB7 to GB1. I added gold Liquid Pearls here and there.

The ribbon is from my sewing box, I sandwiched it between the image and a backing of gold card from my stash. I need to find a large yellow bead to hang on the end to give it some weight, the one I hoped to use is too small to thread the ribbons through! So I'm very sorry that the hanging isn't quite finished properly!

Have a go at monochromatic colouring, it's easier than you think! Then link up to our Challenge - remember, it doesn't have to be a card orscrapbook page, you can make anything as long as it fits the Challenge!

Just remember, PLEASE, to read the very simple rules! It's awful to comment on a beautiful piece of work that is disqualified because the rules haven't been followed!

Right, I'll get off my soapbox and leave you in peace! I hope you all have an excellent week!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

This project is lovely! Brilliant idea to repeat the dove 3 times and put it on the ribbon...Your bead weight for the bottom is a good idea.
