Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge!

Julie -I decided my monochromatic colour was going to be pink and I have made an 8 x 8 scalloped edge card using the wonderful Girls Hoot Digi Download for the supercute image, sentiment and both patterned papers
Some of the images and papers were recoloured in PSE which I am still getting used to
( I had never recoloured anything before so it was good practice for me)


Crafting Vicky - For my monochromatic look I went with a back to school feel :)  I figured I would be feeling kind of pensive if I was returning back to school... that's what my daughter looks like lol So this all being said I used the great image from Pretty Sweet Collection the paper is also from that set.  

Wendy - For my card this week, I chose the theme it in sepia tones and felt the Rose Budd Collection was perfect for this. I chose Charlotte for my image from the collection and all the papers are from it too. It's finished with a little distressing, and a few die cut embellies, made using papers from the collection too, 

Sharon - For this challenge I decided to do something completely different. On the Candy Doodles Collectors edition there is a fab template for a sweet little bird house so I printed this out onto card I chose some of the gorgeous papers from the cd which come in an array of colours (as this is a monochromatic I decided to stick with black and white) and printed these onto back of the templates. One of the papers was recolored with a graphics program but there are some lovely black and white ones on the cd. I followed the easy instructions and made up the bird house, I have left one side if the roof open as I have stuffed it with candy! A few black and white flowers from my stash and hearts cut from black card just finished it off.

Scatty Jan I used the lovely digi stamp Bee Happy, how cute is the little scene - I printed it twice to fussy cut out some extra petals. Coloured in with a memento dual marker, I had lots of fun 

Yvonne - Hi there! So this week is monochromatic week and I decided to use Nikky's papers to be the focus of the card. I used papers from the beautiful Rose Budd Collection, the butterfly is from the Flowers & Leaves Collection. The sentiment is from Dollie Goes East Collection.  All bundles are available from the Digiworld Downloadables section of the store. 

Patty - Hi there! this week is monochromatic and I decided to use Work & Play 3 collection papers to use on the background of the card. I used Teacher image as the main focus also from the collection. The sentiment is from and unknown that i had on my desk then added the black med button and accent with some white twine.

Anjie - The image I have used is Maddie Give Us A Twirl, and she is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. The paper I have used is from the Love and Cherish CD and the flowers from the new Winston CD
