Guylou Inimitability-Monochromatic

  I played along in a challenge at Guylou's Inimitability last month and WON!  As a winner, I was invited to be a guest designer for the challenge: Monochromatic.

 From Guylou: What does the word "Monochromic" means, you ask? Well, Monochromic's definition is "having or appearing to have only one color".     Here is the card I created:

   I used a digi called 'Louise Moving In' that I won in the Khaki challenge.  With my twins graduating college, plenty of their friends are beginning their new lives all over the USA- so a perfect image to make cards for their friends.  I printed the image on Neenah cardstock and used lots of "E" Copics to color in the image.  I 'Double bugged' the background cardstock and used Copic texturizing on the bear, Louise's pants and the shirt on the Left-both techniques from the Technique Junkies.  All cardstock and DSP is SU.  The sentiment is Create with TLC.

  Guylou is the host of this challenge, and feels that while Monochromatic cards are not the easiest to do, the results are stunning.  Click HERE to see the DT samples- Guylou is right- the DT work is stunning!

  Participating in the challenges has its advantages: The winner will be awarded two digistamps of his/her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.

You will have until June 16th, 10:00 pm (EST or click here to find out the corresponding time where you are) to enter your cards or projects here. Be sure to add the link to your entry and not your whole blog as this makes it much easier on the team to find your creations. Thanks for participating!

 Thanks for having me again- I enjoyed Guest Designing and enjoyed the challenge.

Fabulous card!!!! You are using this image exactly for what I designed it for. My daughter's friends are starting to move out of the family nest and moving on their own and I have made a few cards to congratulate them... Uhhmmm! Maybe I should make a guy version of this image! :D
Thanks for being our Guest Designer! It is always a pleasure having you!
