Dream Valley Challenges #139 Monochrome
It's time for a new Challenge at Dream Valley and our theme is Monochrome. That is, use shades of just one colour - except for face and hair if you're using an image of a person. I went with blue:
My Christmas card uses an old Lili of the Valley stamp, sadly she no longer seems to be available. I coloured her with Promarkers - I find monochrome quite tricky, and since I know my Promarkers better than my Copics, I went with the old favourites! All the fur on her outfit is glittered with Icicle Stickles. The papers are also LotV, I distressed the edges and added some Stormy Sky DI.
The large snowflake is an old die from Marianne, also now unavailable, it seems, and I used a Simon Says Stamp Season's Greetings die. fo the sentiment, which I went over with a white gel pen for emphasis.
The ribbon is actually an old sticker from who-knows-where (ie my stash!) and the pretty cotton lace is from Crafty Ribbons. The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts.

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge - the Sentiment is the die-cut 'Christmas Blessings'.
Pixie's Snippets Playground - the silver card is a snippet, and so it the plain blue card.
