Monochrome rocks!

Hello lovely people,

I'm currently on holiday with Dr Hubby and all his family at a cottage in Devon; the weather is a bit variable but we're still having lots of fun :-)

So, while I enjoy another cream tea (probably - we've had 2 already!) I will let you know about the new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday where our theme this time is...


If you're not sure what this means, we want to see shades of just ONE colour on your creation, apart from skin/hair tones if you wish.

We are sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K where you can find a great range of funky images for girls and boys!

I went for a classic greyscale; I really wanted to add a stripe of colour to her hair but resisted to make sure I kept to the monochrome theme... maybe next time!

Can you believe that I have never coloured one of these images before?  I was really excited to get a free image to use for the challenge and this was such fun to colour.

Card recipe;
Image: Vikki Lee Vicious - Kenny K
DP: Enchanted - Bo Bunny & Flea Market - Crate Paper
Dies: Cosmic star set - Memory box
Seam binding: The Ribbon Girl

Copic colours;
Skin: T0/1/2
Hair: T6/8/10/100
Corset: T5/7/9
Skirt: T3/5/7
Tights: T0/1/2 & T3/4
Choker: T0/7/9
Boots: T6/8/10 & 0
Guitar: T0/1/2 & blender

I hope you will pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and check out the fabulous creations and of course, the top tips from the rest of the team.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx
