Just Magnolia - "Monochrome"


Good morning girls. I really hope that you are in good health and that your mojo is overflowing. At this time of year when the eather is not too good and the dark nights are with us it's great to be crafting.
I must admit to being a bit confused about the ongoing debate on what is meant by "Monochrome", the theme of this weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia but I have chosen to define it as different shades of one colour (with a hint of white).
The papers are The Paper Company Studio, My Mind's Eye - Fun Lovin and My Mind's Eye - Pure Joy. The image is Magnolia's "Tilda with Hearts" coloured using Copic Ciaos. The flowers are handmade and the ribbon is from my stash.
I enjoyed making this card once I got used to the monochrome idea and I hope you like the outcome. As always I would really appreciate your feedback if you have time to leave a comment. I get a lot out of reading your views. Thanks for joining my blog today and have a good day.
Hugs,

  5. You got it! Mono means one, so monotone is tones of one colour, all the way from the black end of the spectrum to the white end of it.
    So you have it cracked with this card, which by the way is wonderful - love those flowers!!
