Crafty Ann's Challenge #23 - Monochrome

Over at Crafty Ann's the latest challenge is to use shades of one colour or monochrome.

For this card I used Crafty Ann's Graduate Cat image - don't you think he is a very handsome and distinguished kitty?

His black robe is embossed with black detail ep and he is coloured with crayons using odourless mineral spirit to blend. Weathered Wood DI was sponged inside the nestie frame to highlight him. The scroll is made from rolled up vellum and tied with black twine (should be silk, I suppose, but twine was all I had got!)

The backing papers are also from Crafty Ann's - the grey star embossed, grey abstract and black and white wood effect which was used to make the flower.

Fancy having a go yourself at a monochrome card? Come over and join us at Crafty Ann's - you will be made very welcome!
