Kickin' Back

     Is it Friday morning already?  Where did this week go?  I woke up on Monday and now it's four days later.  lol  OK, well, Friday means a new challenge at QKR Stampede and our theme this week is "Monochromatic" so we want to see cards done in various shades of only one color.  Here's mine using Digi 9106 "Relaxing."


     I started by choosing blue-gray colors and used my ProMarkers to color the image which was printed directly onto the front of a tent card.  I die cut a frame from a leftover scrap of CS and laid it over the image.  I added a scrap of ribbon to the bottom and a bow to the top and called it finished.  A nicely simple design that shows off the image to its best advantage.  :-D

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create
Colour Crazy Craft
Colour Your World
Corrosive
Craft Your Passion
Crafty Boots
Crafty Calendar
Cutie Pie
Di's Digi Designs
Great Impressions
Incy Wincy
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends
Outlawz Twisted Thursday
Pattie's Creations
Pencil Case
Pixie's Crafty Workshop

       Come play in our challenge this week.   Even though it's "Monochromatic," you can still use normal skin tones in coloring your image, if needed.  You're not required to use an image from QKR, but they are all so cute, why wouldn't you?  Besides, if you do use a QKR image, your card is put into a separate drawing and that really increases your chances of winning.  That means more images from QKR so it's a win-win!  See you there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
