Good afternoon everyone!
Well, it is very wet and windy here today.. so awful!
A perfect day for staying home and chilling really. Smiles.
So I thought I would put this blog post together, to show you one of the latest cards I have made.
Over on the Simply Betty Facebook Group, Betty is holding a few celebrations with lots of awesome prizes.
One of the challenges is to create a monochromatic project. But!! (And this is the daunting bit!!) Even the skin has to be in keeping with the mono effect.
Now I have done greys before, and blue (once.)
I saw other entries that were brown and green and grey with a pop of colour.
So I decided to be very brave indeed. I decided to step well and truly out of my comfort zone.
And do my image in (deep breaths here.. ) Reds!!!!
Yes, even the skin!
I’m actually amazed at how lovely she looks all in red. Hehehee.
Honestly, I didn’t think that I could pull it off, but I wanted to have some fun and try anyway. Because really, that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? Fun.
So here is the (small) pile of Copics I used to bring her to life.
The skin tones were done with the R22. 32. 20 & 30.
The hair & clothes were done with the R59. 37. 35. 32. 30.
The swing was done with the R39. 29. 27. 24 & 22.
It’s the skin I’m most amazed with I think! And those eyes!! Just awesome in red! Smiles.
I know right?!
My gorgeously red, shiny ribbon and lovely charm are from Whimsy Stars Studio.
The wonderful Queen Of Hearts ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
The awesome sentiment is from Nitwits.
As soon as I completeted my image I knew exactly which sentiment she needed! Smiles.
You should come join the group. Betty’s images are fabulously amazing, and the group of people there is so friendly and supportive too.
(I’m not DT or admin or anything like that. It just genuinely is am amazing place to be.)
The challenges I would really like to enter into with this all red loved up creation are:-
