MAGICAL MONDAY - Monochromatic Challenge

The special person to receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Linda B.

Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

Well, this going to be short and sweet mainly because I have been sick for over a week now with this awful cough. I managed to make 2 cards this evening after dinner, one for this blog and one for a cause regarding a little girl named Jaimie, so make sure you check out my blog to see another one of my images that will be in my soon to be store. I love elegant images and I think elegant fits this image. Although, I did make this with Thanksgiving in mind, I also think it is certainly an image that could be used for anything in general. So, I will be excited to see what you do with it. Soooo, these designer cards are just wonderful as always, so show your appreciation to the team and leave them all some lovins! I love reading everything you leave in the posts.... so this week let us know if you sit or if you stand while you create. I personally stand, except while coloring my image, although I have been known to stand at our taller table and color as well, but I rarely sit! I use to think everyone stood until I started crafting with friends! :O) So, this week I bring you the image "Elegant Pumpkins". I thought I would also just post the sentiments again this week, just in case someone missed them.

(C) "Elegant Pumpkins"
(left click, then right click "save as" the larger image)

("Elegant Pumpkins" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

Leigh Anne brings us this weeks challenge and she wants you to use the image provided "Elegant Pumpkins" and then do a monochromatic card... your image can be multi color.... pick any ONE color for your monochromatic color for your card and then add with that monochromatic color either white, black or grey... Does that make sense? LOL... I hope so! This was my first card for monochromatic, so if you have any questions just slip me an e-mail and I will try to answer you asap.

(monochromatic: one color with variations of that same color from light to dark.)

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is:

Now for the oh so talented...

Lovely cards DT team. I just posted my creation to Mr Linky. Let me know what you think?


Shelly said...

Congrats to Linda!!! Nina, thank you for the beautiful image. I hope you feel better soon. I'm praying for you. All of the DT cards are gorgeous! I don't think I'll be able to fit in time to play this week due to too many obligations and I regret it, because I'd love to try this image and the monochromatic challenge. But hopefully next week will be more sane & I can join in. I sit down when I'm creating. In fact I usually put my feet up and relax if I'm coloring. :)

Lisa Foster said...

Thank you so much for the beautiful image again this week, Nina! Design Team...your cards are ALL fabulous...I hang my head in shame...I had a hard time with this monochromatic challenge...then I realized we were supposed to use white, black, or gray...I used vanilla...Opps...maybe it still counts???

I do both sitting and standing when I craft...I sit to color and stand to do the rest...I have no idea why...it's just how it works with me...LOL

Thanks again!

Sophia said...

Thanks for another gorgeous image! I mostly stand while I'm stamping, until my back can't take it anymore. Then I sit.

Of course, I sit to color, too. :)

DeniseLynn said...

Thanks again Nina. I just posted my card. Hope I understood the challenge! I'm a sitter when it comes to crafting, with my dog in my lap most of the time!

Patti J said...

Uh oh....Nina, I'm hanging my head too! I just now actually comprehended the black white and gray. OOPS! Well, girl, at least you have it before 10 tonight! So sorry - if I happen to be drawn, do me like a fish and throw me back...lol!!! Hope you are feeling better sweetie! Can't wait to see what you have for us tomorrow! Thanks for all to beautiful digi's!!! You rock!
