Monochromatic Magnolia...

Whew!  Say that 3 times fast...

I created this easel card today using only black, white, gray, and red. It's my take on a monochromatic card with a touch of red.  I saw someone else color an image in all grays and I absolutely loved it (I'm sorry, I can't remember who it was and I scoured the internet looking too).  I used a Magnolia image and Copic colors C1, C3, C5 and C7.  I also used the Copic Spica Glitter Pens for her wings and the hearts but it may be hard to see in the pictures.  The paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack and CTMH. Flowers are from Prima and the sentiment, safety pin and charm are from CTMH.

This is my 2nd Tilda and my first try at the easel card and I'm quite pleased *toot toot*

I hope you like her! And guess what?  I have no idea what I'm going to do with her!

Thanks for looking and have a scrapping day!

Your card is great for the ATS Easel challenge because All That Scraps sells Magnolia stamps and you can use any stamps they sell... to be eligible for the prize you have to have a link to the challenge blog in your post though. I would have emailed you but I don't see an email link anywhere on your blog..I'm on the DT for the ATS challenge blog.

What a neat idea to color her in all greys like that! I had to smile when you said you have no idea what you are going to do with her. I do the same thing...make a card and set it to the side for "someday." LOL. Any recipient of your card will be lucky to get it! Gina L

I have yet to try mono-coloring. You did a great job. I like the touch of red.
