SeemaCrafts Challenge

Welcome Fellow Bloggers, Crafters and most importantly Friends....
 
Today is the launch of Septembers challenge 'Monochromatic', over on SeemaCrafts
 
 
I will admit, I always thought monochromatic was black and white, however this challenge has taught me that it actually means 'tones/shades of the same colour'....every day is a school day. Even though I have learnt this, I still chose black and white as my theme lol
SeemaCrafts is not only a challenge blog, but Seema, the owner, also makes embellishments that she sells in her shop on the blog. Please have a look as she puts in so much time and effort into what she makes.
 
This month, the challenge is sponsored by the fabulous LEJ Designs, who design their own gorgeous Digi Stamps and backing papers. The shop is always worth a look as there are often freebies up for grabs.
 
 
For last months Winner and runners up, please see the original blog post by clicking the below link

What I made for the Challenge

 
The Card Opened.
The snow flakes are stamped with FlitterGlu and then white glitter added.
The Image is from a Serif Craft Artist Digi Kit. I have used some glitter pen and then some puff ink that you paint on, heat and it puffs up.
 
 
Front of the Card, Closed.
This has been stamped with a snow flake stamp and finished with a black satin edged ribbon.
 
 
Back of the Card.
I have used two diecuts stuck over the ribbon that has been used to tie the card together.
This was a brand new fold for me, that I found on Pinterest. I love the simplicity of the fold, with the gorgeous complicated look to it. This shape is a great one to decorate and you can change the shape of the card base to give it an even more different look.
 
 
I hope you like this card, I loved making it.... I hope it has inspired you to go over to the blog and join in this wonderful challenge. As a challenge blog, we pride ourselves on always leaving comments on entries, as we appreciate how much time people put into their entries.
Thank you for your visit...
