Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 18

Quixotic Paperie Challenge day and today we have:

Monochrome

So for this one you need to use a single color or hue with tints and shades included but we are allowing skin tones for character images so don't panic :)

Well for my DT make this week I decided to go for a teal monochrome and a bit of a sea theme with the fabulous Eric from Paper Make-Up Stamps which is available at Quixotic Paperie. I've stamped him out in teal ink and then covered him in Glossy Accents.

I've used the My Mind's Eye Colourful Christmas paper and used a mask and some ink to add some 'bubbles'.


The background for the stamp is a bit of map paper which I have distressed with ink and covered with Rock candy crackle paint.


I added some fabric, the teal coloured pieces are muslin left over from a recent dyeing project and the white fabric is a little bit of wound dressing muslin (Not used off course. LOL!). I've stuck it to the card with Mod Podge.


I've added splodges of Mod Podge on top of the fabric and areas of the card then added beads. Also I added some sea-themed charms and a little shell that I had in my craft box. Elaine has some shell charms at Quixotic Paperie.

The ickle blue ceramic fishy will also be available at Quixotic Paperie soon (if it is not up already!).


Hope you aren't all at sea today
Kim
