FFF - Monochromatic Challenge

The Challenge

This week for Splendid Stamping's Farm Fresh Friday challenge we have been asked to create a MONOCHROMATIC card. The rules are that we can colour the image, but the card stock, embellishments etc and the main image panel may be white or cream but the rest should be from colour family.

This is what I came up with and I really like the timeless look of this card. I have used the Dressy Edward and Camille digis and coloured them with my copics and SU markers, the idea was to use only a colour that would really stand out but still be classic, so I chose Ruby Red for Camille's dress and shoes and also for Ed's tie.

I then chalked the edges of the background with the black from my SU pastels and added the Rub-On from Kaisercraft's basic range. I then set this on a backdrop made of a mix of black and grey papers and finished the card off with some black satin ribbon, black silk flowers and a crystal and silver brad also from Kaisercraft.

All in all I am quite happy the way the card turned out, although I still need to perfect my skin colouring a little!
