Monochromatic - GDT Card

Morning everyone!

So this morning I'm sharing a card that I made for Paper Makeup Stamps challenge #44 "monochromatic".

 Don't be afraid to Google it! I know I did.

I was really excited to have a chance to make this card, and just look at this cute Moody image! The Image in my card is Moody for Snow, She can be found HERE in the PMS store.

To color this Image I used my copics. For her Skin: E000, E00, E01. For her Hair: W4, W7, W10. and for her clothes B60, B63, B66, B69. The snow both in the digi and on the card were colored with B60, then in the image covered with glossy accents, and on the card colored with a Sakura Star Burst pen to give some extra glimmer! Oh- and the doily was given a once over with the B60 as well.

Here I also wanted to give you a close up of my Flowers. I ran in to a problem of only having blue rose buds. No other blue flowers, I was kicking my self for not buying them when I had seen them. I just didn't know what I would use them for, now I know. Solution: take your white Flowers (roses in this case) and apply Copis! I'm sure that other markers or sprays would work as well. Don't be afraid to get down in there and if the front of the petal isn't taking the color or you cant reach it, then work on the back and it will bleed through. I also took a marker to the leafs and stems to make them a dark blue or maybe more like black. If you want to add glitter then simply use a glue that has a fine tip, apply to the edges of your petals and then dip in glitter and tap off the excess! You can even make your flowers two-tone, just apply the light color first then add the darker on the edges!

I hope you enjoyed, I'll try and post another card later this week. Something with a lot of Glitz!
