So let’s see what the design team have made for us!

Tanya....For this week's monochromatic challenge I’ve chosen the colour black and this has given me chance to use my love of Zentangle.  I’ve been wondering for a while whether any of Nikky’s lovely digis would look as good Zentangled as they do coloured in pens and pencils.  Well, what do you think?   As like last week I’ve used one of the digis from the Serenity collection called Serenity Princess and a sentiment from the collection too.  The papers are from the Dolly Goes East collection
More photos can be seen on my blog....

  Scatty Jan  I love the Work and Play 11 so much . This time I have used the Gymnast twirling girl available as a digi or part of the amazing CD collection .  The paper and sentiment are also from the collection. I have coloured up with pencils. Punched a few flowers out and added some gems and a feather. Some stickles on her twirler to finish.

Emma - For my Monochrome card i have used the Nordic Winter collection, love this collection. I have coloured up the Santa Digi with pencils for that more vintage look. All of the papers & embellishments are also from the Full Nordic Winter Collection that can be found Here
Julie - I used shades of pink on my monochromatic make, and the rose image from the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle.  The backing papers and sentiment are also from this lovely collection.  Shades of pink -- so pretty!

Aunty Sue Hi wow have I loved doing this card. For my Monochromatic card I have gone with the Greys. I have used yet again one of the fab Ickyink digi images. This one is Oddella Heart and is available HERE. My papers and elements are from Frosted Winter CD available HERE My sentiment tickets are from Work & Play 10 Country Life available HERE. I have coloured my image with my new Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour Pencils and added lace and gems from my stash.
Lynda: For this weeks challenge I combined my two favourite things Craft and Cats! I used a digi stamp,papers and sentiment from the Work and Play 10 Country Life Collection. It's available on a CD or as a digital download. You can also just buy the cat digi separately here. Have fun xx 

Jane – Hi everyone!  My VERY blue card is made using the gorgeous DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST COLLECTION.  You can purchase the stunning image, called DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST - BACKPACK separately if you wish but there are so many amazing things in this bundle I urge you to go for the FULL COLLECTION.  The letters are cut from paper that can be found in the WINSTON DELUXE DOWNLOAD.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Monica.-For my monochromatic project I made a double lever card with the gorgeous a papers and sentiments included on Love & Cherish Collection. I also used a flourish cutting file from Eden Collection and butteflies cutting file from Twiggy & Toots Collection.

Anjie - The image, papers, embellies and sentiment are all from the fabulous new Octavia Frosted Winter collection. This is available as a download collection HERE, as a CD HERE, or in separate items HERE. As you can see I have used shades of green. I have coloured her with my green and grey green Graph'It Markers. The background is also done with Graph'Its and a the Graph'It blender pen and the Graph'It white shaker pen.
Wendy - For my monochrome card I've used Etty Shy from the Winston collection. You can also get Etty as an individual digi here. Both the dotty and striped backing papers are from the same collection, however I have darkened the dotty paper with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Audrey I chose blue, using an image and sentiment from Serenity Fairy Wishes Digital Download Bundle.  The image Serenity Earth Star, can be purchased as a single image HERE and you can also purchase Serenity Fairy Wishes Sentimentals Bundle on its own.  All the designer papers I chose plus the flowers and button embellies can be found in the Winston Deluxe Full Collection.  I then added the ribbon to the outside of the card and Stickles on Serenity's wings.
