Monochromatic Cards

I haven't been able to do any crafting lately but since my blog is fairly new, everything I've ever made has not been showcased here. So, I thought, instead of just waiting for the one fine day i do get around to crafting something new, I'll just show you my older projects in the mean time. I made these two monochromatic cards for a color challenge a few weeks ago. Before then, I didn't even know such a style existed. I am so elementary at these things. *sigh*

The card you see on top was an all turquoise card with a bit of yellow and a black mat on it. The ribbon wasn't really as loud as it seems in the scanned image. I paper pieced the dresses which I drew and then added embroidery thread, a star shaped gem and glitter to make them a little fancier. I also used my fancey scissors on the long gown.

The other card was an only purple card. I used different shades of purple for it. I kept the card pretty simple but used an interesting layout. Instead of using an image, I used a prima flower with a purple star for the centre. The same stars have been used on top and at the bottom as well. The purple matting u see is actually a frame i got from a friend. I aligned it with the white square to make it look as if it was matted.

Hope you like my cards. Will be back tomorrow with more old projects.

Happy crafting,
