Let is Snow ... in monotone

And there is quite a different sort of conversation around a fire than there is in the shadow of a beech tree.... [F]our dry logs have in them all the circumstance necessary to a conversation of four or five hours, with chestnuts on the plate and a jug of wine between the legs. Yes, let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. ~Pietro Aretino, translated from Italia

Hello my Lovelies!
Today ushered in a new color challenge at The Outlawz Challenges

This week’s challenge comes to us from Jeanie and she is asking they we make a monotone card/project with one color to pop!

Our sponsor this month is sheepski designs with a prize of 3 images to her etsy store.

I am using her awesome and fun image “Snowmen Selfie”

I absolutely adore this image and I am not a selfie fan! Anyway... I am attempting a black and white photo look here and added a bit of jade to the image for my pop. Not going to lie, I've attempted these before with really disapointing results. This time I used a previous image I had colored for another challenge and ran it through my copy machine to give me a photo in black and white. Then I sat down with my alcohol markers and proceded to color this one up using the photocopy as a guide. I'm really happy how this one turned out ... so here is my 5 x 7 card

  • Image "Snowmen Selfie" colored with pro-markers and copics
  • Card stock from Stampin Up! and The Paper Studio
  • Confetti embossing folder from Close to My Heart
  • Glitter paper from Recollections

 Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come on over to The Outlawz Challenges where a new and different challenge starts every day!
(hugs) Cara

I love the complicity of the color palette.
