Birgitta in Blue

All That Scraps - Monochrome
SCS Sketch Challenge - SC261

Here is my first attempt at monochromatic coloring! I've learned All That Scraps has a Weekly Wednesday Challenge and for this week it's monochrome projects. They featured a card by Katie Cotton as an example and gave links to her video tutorials on how to do this. Let me tell you, they are fabulous! I watched them and said, 'Okay, I can DO this!' I chose Swiss Pixie Birgitta by C.C. Designs and stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I pulled out my neutral markers and realized I didn't have the range I needed for black & white monochromatic coloring. Hmmm, well I decided Birgitta could look good in blue, right? Although, she does look a bit like she's been holding her breath too long, KWIM? hahahaha

The papers are from Basic Grey Lime Rickey and Marrakech. I colored white flowers with the copics to match. I used Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilities to cut Birgitta out and edged it with a blue spica atyou glitter pen. And she just seemed to NEED sparkly wings, so I dusted them with dazzling diamonds glitter. Here's a close-up of her. {grin}

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Have a fabulous day!

I really appreciate that you take the time to explain the inspirations behind your cards and always list the supplies that you used. This card is beautiful and although it's blue ... it made me happy! :)
