Anything Goes Challenge #85 - 'Monochrome'...

Good morning everyone...

Wooooow....I'm so excited. This is my first post for Anything Goes Challenge. This fortnight our theme is 'Monochrome'.

I was planning on going for black & white, but decided on browns instead.

She's been coloured with Copics using all the E Nos.

Copics Used :-

Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, E93, E40
Tights & Leotard: E43, E42, E41, E40
'Tutu': E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
Shoes: E59, E57, E23
Hair: E59,E37, E35, E33, E21

I've embellished the card with ribbons and pearls from my stash, along with punched butterflies.
The flowers are rolled roses cut using a Marianne Creatables English Rose die. I've still not mastered making these and it took a number of goes and a little huffing and puffing too!

All the papers and embellishments have been distressed using Walnut Stain ink and the inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

Why not pop over to the Anything Goes Challenge Blog where you can see some lovely cards from my teamies for inspiration. Also don't forget to have a look in The Craft Den to see what lovely goodies Lynne has to offer.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

My Time to Craft #206 - Things with Wings
Polka Doodles - Monochromatic
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Copic Marker Europe #13 - Anything Goes
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Anything Goes

Hope you can join us. Happy Crafting.

Beautiful card Janine, I love monochrome themes, its a challenge to stick to one colour when colouring (for me anyway) but the finished result is always so worth it.
