Monochromatic vs. two-tone

Whew...I had quite a day! My 2 week old girl was having some kind of ache, and I couldn't calm her down, no matter what I tried.... talk about the first tremendous motherly experience lol.
I managed to squeeze in some time for crafting though, you know me ;)
Here's the first of the two cards that I created:


Two different challenge blogs gave us the same task this week - to create a monochromatic card - and this is my response to both of them. They are "Monochromatic Mania" at TSG, and "Monochromatic" at Paper Blooms. I'm also entering it for the "Christmas in October" challenge at Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog, another nice place that I found yesterday. The sketch that I used comes from CPS.

The second card goes for Colour Create's colour combo for this week, which is red, yellow, black & white. I know this is an obvious invitation to make another Halloween project, but I decided to follow a different path.


The other challenge for this one is "Pick 5" over at 365 Cards. It's about using 5 different elements on the project, and mine are: 2 patterned papers, 1 length of ribbon and 2 stamped images.

Thank you so much for looking!

  1. Wow, such gorgeous cards, your red card is very elegant, I love the papers you have used and that huge red bow. I don't think Jan thought of halloween when she set this colour combo months ago and none of us made a halloween card so your card fits in just perfectly.

    Thank you for joining us at Colour Create this week. Hope to see you again,
