At last...

... I've finally bitten the bullet and had a go at monochrome colouring!!!!  I've admired this sort of colouring for ages but not been brave enough to attempt it but with a couple of challenges tempting me I had a go and quite pleased with my first attempt:

I have coloured a sugar nellie image with warm greys 1-5 with a touch of aqua, then used aqua paper with ribbons, grey pearls and charm from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Sweet Stamping - monochrome
CYDA - shades of grey and one other.
Crafty Catz - monochromatic.
Crafting when we can - monochrome

On Friday, we went to see some football - Team GB v Brazil:

Well all I can say is the pre-match excitement was wasted on the match - very poor performance from Team GB I dont think we'll get any medals from this lot :-(.  Brazil might though!

Right best get some tea sorter   - what to do, what to do!!

Thanks for looking

  16. Whoops, just realised now you have not used a Saturated Canary image so sadly your card does not qualify for our challenge.

  17. Doh!! I know - realised and left a message on the blog *blush*

  18. Great card Ali, the aqua and grey look wonderful together and I love how you have made your image the focus of your card.
