Little Moments With You Matter


My mojo has been zip, nada, just not around .... anywhere!!! Unfortunately stress from my class has just really affected my creativity, but this weekend i tried to just set it aside and do some crafting and i was able to do a few cards, some for fun and a few challenges and some others for my design teams. Today's card i made for Unity Stamp Co's Show & Tell Facebook group, the challenge this week is anything goes with any Unity girl.

I've been seeing a lot of monochromatic coloring and finally got around to giving it a try! I started with some Kraft card stock and i stamped the girl from Unity's Only Imagine stamp set with some brown ink. Then i used my Spectrum Noir markers BG1, BG4, BG7 to color her up. I did leave her eyes uncolored.

Next i stamped the sentiment below her in brown ink and then cut  her how with a fancy rectangle die. Then i found some pretty text pattern paper and i added it to a white card base. Then i added the stamped rectangle with foam tape and last i added a few matching enamel dots.

Now this was my second attempt at monochromatic coloring, i first stamped and colored with EB1, EB2, EB7 (on the left) but i wasn't sure i liked it, so i did it again with the BG colors. I decided i like the BG colors the best (on the right), but then figured i already had the other one colored i might as well make a card out of it too.

After editing the photo's, i'm not sure which one i like the best, on one hand i like them, but on another i think the colors are just a little too different! It's probably because i've never colored anything monochromatic before! Which one do you prefer?

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
