Pattie's Creations Challenge #46 - Monochromatic

It's time for another fabulous challenge over at Pattie's Creations and this time we want you to make a project that is monochromatic. For those of you that are wondering "Monochromatic...what's that?" What we want you to do is pick a colour and make a project using various shades of that colour. It is o.k. to colour hair and flesh tones their natural colour.

I was so excited for this challenge because I got to play with one of Pattie's new images, Fishing Bear. He is just the cutest image and so perfect for a guy card.
Isn't he just adorable? I made him into a Father's Day card but he could be used for any kind of male card.
The card fold is an Easel with 2 mini easels and you can find the tutorial for it here.

The base cs is a olive green by SU, the polka dot dp is by BoBunny, the patterned dp is BoBunny's Roughin' It Nature dp, and the light green dp behind the bear, trees and sentiments is by Bazzil. I coloured the image with Crayola Pencil Crayons and oms, cut him out and added him to the card with pop dots. I added green flatbacked pearls by Recollections and a sentiment by Nettie's Cards cut out with my SU scalloped circle punch. The sentiment on the front mini easel is by A Piece of Heart. The two trees are from a rubber stamp from the SU collection Lovely as a Tree. I stamped it onto the green dp by Bazzil with my Wild Wasabi SU Classic Ink Pad.

The challenge runs from June 15th until Thursday June 28th at 1p.m. CST. It is a Pattie's Creations Rule that you must use an image, it can be a digital or stamped image. For a full list of our rules and prizes head on over to Pattie's Creations Challenge Blog. While you're there check out all the marvelous creations that my team mates have made.

Thanks for looking....Charlene

Charlene - What a cool card design! It almost looks like a step card combined with the easel. Your coloring theme is perfect for a forest themed card!
