A Monochrome Fairy

Good morning, peeps!  It's that day again - the day for another Polka Doodles Challenge and this week, the challenge is to produce a monochrome card.  I'm actually trespassing into the group I'm not normally in to catch up because I wasn't able to make a card last week for the group of which I'm usually a part.  That means you'll be seeing another one of my cards again next week to get back into my normal sequence.  Anyhoo, here's my Monochrome Fairy:

I do believe that this is the first time I've ever created a monochrome card and I found colouring the image really interesting and challenging.  It's one of the gorgeous fairies from the Sugar Plum Daisy CD and they're all lovely - it was really hard to choose but this little cutie seated on the toadstool won the day because it fitted with my red/pink theme.  The lovely ticket sentiment is from the same CD, which is packed full of goodies including loads of wonderful papers.

The ivy sprays are cut with a Marianne Designs Creatable die - I've used this one a lot - so useful.  The edges of the ticket sentiment and the Go Kreate central panel are distressed with Barn Door DI.

Copics used:  E000, E00, E21, R20, R11 for the skin and the rest of the image was coloured with R000, R11, R20, R22, R24, R27, R29, R30, R59 oh and a little black Promarker on the ladybird!

I do hope you can join us for this challenge, I can assure you it's great fun colouring an image in tones of one colour!  Thank you for looking at my efforts for this week.

  1. She is lovely Diane, and I do like how you have used the ivy to trail down one side.
