All Dressed Up in Monochromatic


It's time for another challenge over at All Dressed Up!  Our theme this go round is Monochromatic!  We'd love for you to enter so stop by the blog and get all the details.  You must use an All Dressed Up image but if you don't already have one, there are FREE images available on the blog.

I used this cute little kitty called Purrrfect Together that you can find in the All Dressed Up Shop.  In keeping with the theme of monochromatic I used black and white papers and added gray to the kitty with some black and white polka dots on the bow.  It was so hard not to add some red or some other color on there but a challenge is a challenge!   I framed her out with a Camera Frame, added some ribbon, and rhinestones.  The sentiment was completed with a die and then stacked for more dimension.

Thanks for stopping by......and be sure and check out the All Dressed Up blog to see some wonderful inspiration from the DT and enter the challenge.

Awwwwwwwwww...this is just the cutest thing I've seen in a while. I LOVE it. And, all those polka dots just made it cuter. Love the little scarf around the neck. Your card is too sweet for words.

Love It. You managed to get a little pink nose. I know it's not red, but getting close. LOL I have never tried stacking my dies like you did, but I really want to try it. You do such a good job at it. The polka dotted paper is just perfect. Have a great evening.

Your card is adorable and I love the die cuts you used! The double frame of the image is pretty clever too!

Tammy said...

You did well on keeping this with no bright colors. The dotted paper made that adorable kitty & her bow just pop. You have some good shading going on for Miss Kitty's coat too. Your bow and the shiny rhinestones - along with her fluffy bow and the die sentiment dressed her up just very finely and so sophisticated in her 'little black dress'. WTG. TFS & Hugs

I would have a hard time with this challenge Lynn. lol But you have done a fabulous job with this challenge!! I love the black and white color combo and I love those polka dots. Your little kitty is so cute too. I just may have to give this a try just because it is hard for me and that is what it is all about-challenging yourself right?! Hugs

NanaConnie said...

OK, that's the cutest kitty ever and I simply have to have it. So, I can go buy it or you can mail me the card to frame and hang on my wall. Since I'll get it faster if I go buy it....
I love this card; the polka dots are fabulous! Love the bow and your sentiment is beautifully done.

Diane said...

Spectacular design Lynn, what a fun image and monochromatic card.

Jessi Fogan said...

ACKKK! Total utter cuteness! I love that you've got the fluffy bow all done up in polka dots too - a-dorable!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Very pretty! This works so well for the black and white mono challenge. I'm with you though, black and white just screams out for a little stitch of color somewhere. Good job at not giving it to temptation!

JD/ Jill said...

This is a cute and pretty card. I always have trouble doing a monochromatic card...but you obviously didn't! Great job!
