Sundays With Crissy ~ Monochrome

 

Happpy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day!    I hope you’re having a great day.   It’s time for a new challenge at Sundays With Crissy.   This week we’re covering Monochrome cards ~  I’ll bet you’ll NEVER guess who suggested this challenge!???   🙂     Yep, it is my favorite.    This awesome image, illustrated by Crissy Armstrong, called Daddy’s Heartbeat, is available as a digi image from Whimsy Stamps.   I thought it was a perfect stamp for Father’s Day.

 

 

I’ve added a bit of color this time – a slight pink (E04) to their lips and cheeks and the flower on the little girl’s hat …. ohh, and of course her finger nails too!   The Copic markers I used  (E70s) seem to have a somewhat natural pink/reddish tone to them, so it was very easy to incorporate some color without it being too harsh.    You can find the colors used at the end of this post. 

The DP is from the Basic Grey cappella 6×6 paper pad … I really LOVE these papers!    I added a small bow using some brown crinkled ribbon from my stash, and attached a small heart charm.  

The sentiment is also a digi.   It is part of a set of sentiments and word art designed especially to coordinate with this image by Rainbow Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps, called Daddy’s Heartbeat Sentiments ~  Although they are all appropriate for LOTS of others images and cards.   

I’ve used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Six dies for the sentiment.   The main image has been cut with the Petite Ovals Large dies.    The pearls in each corner were colored with an E70 Copic marker and the brown swirls on the center of the card were cut with an EK Success punch.

I hope you can stop over at the Sundays With Crissy blog to see the always amazing creations from the talented ladies on Crissy’s Crew ~ You won’t be disappointed.    We’ve decided with everyone’s busy schedules during the summer to run this challenge for four weeks.   It will run until July 18th ~  So you will have plenty of time to join us for this really fun challenge!   To sweeten the deal, Crissy will be having TWO PRIZES!!
