Monochromatic Flowers & a Circle Challenge

Julie Warner -
I have a couple more cards to share today…first a couple of monochromatic cards. This first one is for the MIX61 challenge, monochromatic. I used shades of yellow..from pale to a dull yellow/gray. The large yellow background is actually a really big paint chip with 3 colors of pale yellow. So I’m hoping the paint chip (found item), ink, Copics, glitter glue and ribbon will be enough to fit in the “Mix”. After coloring my daisies, I added the greeting and a pen work frame around it and the right edge is a bit out of the box. The seam ribbon was colored w/ Copics and added to the handle.
These are the Copics I used.

This next card was sort of a trial run for the one above. It is also monochromatic, but there’s not a real mix of stuff going on so it really doesn’t fit the “mix”. It does fit into the Free For All Challenge, circles! (F4A214).

This one is very CAS (clean & simple). I stamped the big bloom, masked it and stamped the writing along one side. I used pretty much the same Copics as the one above, minus the cool grays. The greeting was stamped on little strip and the two left side corners were rounded. I added 2 Candi dots in the upper right for a little balance.
