A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge



A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge

Our Challenge this week was picked by our very own Joanne and she challenged us to make a Monochromatic card (not just black and white) all tones of the same colour, and dear generous Nikki has offered a wonderful set of stamps as a prize.



Sorry another easel card, I am just loving this shape card. I am also loving this little Cozy Tilda who has been coloured with distress inks, then cut out an placed on the Magnolia Snowflake Circle which has been heat embossed with Crystal EP and Lavender Liquid Pearls have been added. To achieve the colour I wanted for Tildas snowsuit I mixed Milled Lavender and weathered wood, I think it is a good match to the lovely Magnolia papers.



Sizzix and Martha Stewart Snowflakes have been added the large snowflakes have been covered with drys clear glue and Twinklets have been sprinkled over them. I am not really a fan of Mirriboard but the silver seemed to fit this card.



The sentiment on the base of the card is also by Magnolia and the Mini Angel Tilda was one I pucked up at the NEC she has also been coloured with distress inks.



Have a good day
