CSAYL - Monochromatic Colours

Hi there!
This week's challenge over at CSAYL is to use only monochromatic colours on your cards and the winner this week will have the chance to be a guest designer in September.

For my card I turned to one of my all time favourite stamp sets - Wings Of Joy from Taylored Expressions. Red is also my favourite colour so I decided to go different shades of red to create my monochromatic look:

I used white for my base and Berry Sorbet for my mat. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my R22, R24, R27 and R29 copics to create varying shades of red. Some Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to the image as well. I scored two lines at the top and bottom of the card and added a strip of Scor-Tape which was then sprinkled with glitter. Finally I used my new Eyelet Lace border die to cut a strip from Berry Sorbet card.

On the insde I stamped a sentiment from Wings of Joy in Tuxedo Black ink along with the snowflake images on either side. I finished off my colouring these with copics.

You have until next Thursday to link up your card so be sure to check out the CSAYL blog to see the rest of the design team's work for some inspiration.
