We’re going MONOCHROME!

Pin It

The new Sentimental Sundays challenge is MONOCHROME (with a sentiment)! This one was a bit of a challenge for me. I generally try to avoid monochrome projects because they intimidate me. But I gave this one a try and am pretty happy with the results.

I’m going to keep this post short since I am late getting it up. Drop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the other fabulous MONOCHROME (with a sentiment) creations from the rest of the DT and download your free sentiment set from Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. I can’t wait to see your MONOCHROME project.

Have a great day!

This is stunning Cheryl, the liquid pearls are the perfect finishing touch - I wish I could get them to look as good when I use them.

This is stunning Cheryl. Love the soft green tones. The pearls, vintage lace and seambinding all are perfect for this look. Love it!
Tracy said…
Monochrome intimidates me too, but I think you've done a truly lovely job. Those shades of green are so pretty and the muted color of the lace is just the perfect little accent. :-)

Oh this is truly outstanding, Cheryl - such a striking card, beautiful in every way! Love the "almost vintage" feel your card has - and the pearls are delightful!

Gorgeous, Cheryl! You did a fabulous job with the monotone challenge. This is so elegant and so detailed. Lovely sentiment, too. I love all the stitching and the seam binding, and adore the liquid pearls on the scalloped die cut. :)

gorgeous creation and love the addition of the pearls, thank you for sharing with us at the Emerald Faerie Garden

Marlene said…
This is so pretty, and I had to look twice to see that you used LIQUID pearls as opposed to actual pearl bling. How do you get them rounded out? I always seem to end up with "peaks" on my liquid pearls.
Anita said…
Wow Cheryl, this is so gorgeous. I'm also intimidated by monochrome but you hit this one out of the park! Love the lace, pearls and wrinkly ribbon.
Jen Adcock said…
What a stunner! You had me at the pearls! So classy and ultra gorgeous. Wow!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
