Crafty Ann's Monochrome Challenge

Hi, wow Friday already and another challenge over at Crafty Ann's challenge blog and this time around the challenge is 'Monochrome' i've used Ann's fab Calla Lilies image and one of the beautiful mottled stone backing papers (check them out at  Ann's shop here) to make this card

I've painted the image with Twinkling h2o's and matted it on some brown card. I've also distressed the edges of the image and the bp with a craft knife and embossed them with gold EP. I punched borders from brown and cream pearlescent paper with a MS punch and added some brown velvet ribbon. The buckle is a printable embellishment from Crafty Ann's - I love these as you can colour and resize them to match your project and save a fortune!! I painted this buckle with h2o's and added gold stickles. To finish the card off I added some dew drops and a couple of calla lillies tied with a little brown ribbon. The lillies were white but I sprayed them with a little glimmer mist to colour them brown.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
Fab'n' Funky: Whateva
Stamptacular: Distress it

Thanks for popping by, I'm looking forward to seeing your monochrome creations for our challenge this time

  1. This is just gorgeous Claire. I adore the colourway you went with. The whole card is so elegant and classy, I just love it! I love how you changed the colour of the two small lillies to match too. I think I might have to try your idea of colouring the buckles with twinkling H2Os too - that's worked really well.
    Great work.
