Week 409–monochrome

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘pretty pastels’ challenge.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful creations and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will win the $6.00 voucher courtesy of Little Miss Muffet stamps and we will also be finding out who Lisa has chosen as her top 5 passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Kitty from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘monochrome’ (for those of you unsure what that means the definition is ‘a photograph or picture developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one colour’).  So in other words Kitty would like you to create something using predominantly shades of one colour.  You can of course use skin/hair colours and accent colours but we want your creation to be basically shades of one colour.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton(formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is Ppinkydolls and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Their image are super cute so why not pop over to their store and check them out.  Some of the DT were lucky enough to use Ppinkydolls images on their creations this week.
