TTIC # 55 - Monochromatic Colour!

Ok.. It is Tuesday and that means that it's another fabulous

Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge

But, as much as I love doing a challenge....
It is not what's making me jump up and down in my seat!

This Is...

Yes, I have one more sleep to go and I will be
watching it!!!....
This time tomorrow I will be going out, have a nice dinner with
my friends Lisa and Hannah
then we will watch Twilight and after that....
New Moon!!!
Yah!! I am soooooo excited!! Can you tell!! LOL!!

Then, on Saturday my sister Cindy, her BFF Hayley, my wonderful and beautiful friends Susy, Sharon and my Wendy will be shopping, dressing up, having a nice dinner, some serious girlie time.....
And not forgetting a quick trip to the movies as well!!

Our "New Moon" weekend is finally here...
We have been planning this for months!!

Ok... Now that I have got that off my chest, we better get down to business...
For this week's theme our exquisite and elegant Eve came up with...

Make a project using a Monochromatic Colour scheme
inspired by the Twilight Saga.

For those who may not know or are unsure, a monochromatic colour scheme uses a single colour on most every layer of a project. In this type of scheme, various darker shades, grayer tones, and paler tints of the main colour may be included. In addition, the one colour is often paired with white or another neutral.
(Wording paraphrased from About.com)

So, for this card I used this weeks
Mojo Monday Sketch 113....

And because they are sooooo cute the "Twilight" inspired
Greeting Farm Digital Images
(btw, thank you so much Jen for helping me out with these!!).

I decided even before I had picked out a sketch and "Joyce" (Rosalie) for this card that I wanted to use blue...It has always been a favourite colour.
Then throwing in a bit of Basic Grey DP I had lying around
and everything seemed to fall into place...

I had so much fun colouring Rose's hair,
I have never actually attempted to do blond before...
I don't think it turned out too bad!

I also use one of the sentiments from Artful INKables "Fictionally Inspired" Set.

Stamps: TGF-Digital Image "Joyce", Artful INKables
Paper: Basic Grey, Blue Bazzill
Ink: Versafine-Black, TH Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Sketch: Mojo Monday 113
Accessories: Ribbon, Button
Technique: Distressing, Prisma Pencils

And finally, we're doing something even more different today!

Alison is also issuing a Special Challenge:

Erica said...

Ummmm....I really have no words. Donna, you amaze me every week! This card is stunning! I love everything about it. Really, it is beautiful.

ellepaulette said...

LOL! Great minds think alike and I think that is what happened here. We both used the Mojo sketch, the color blue and a Greeting Farm image! We are like twins today!!

Your card though is just so perfect!! I love your blues and your coloring knocks me off my feet! Wonderful!! :)

Jen Shults said...

I'm more than a little jealous that you are going to be seeing this twice in one weekend. I wish I could swing that. But once will be plenty. Looks like the Mojo sketch was the topic of the week, lol. I love what you did with this. I'm especially liking the offset rounded corners. That gives it a nice asymmetrical feel. Gorgeous job with the pencils again... you are really a pro with these. Layering her on that super dark background really makes her pop... really nice job. :D

Bumbles and Fairy-Tales said...

Wow! What a gorgeous card! And Rosalie is so beautiful! Alice would be so proud ;)
Enjoy your fab weekend of yummy Edwardness!!! Can't wait to see pics!!!

Jessica Diedrich said...

Just GORGEOUS Donna! Your coloring is stunning and your monochromatic look makes her pop all the more. LOVE IT!

Jacqueline said...

This is so gorgeous honey!! LOVE rose!! Just Love her! Your coloring is so FAB! Perfect hair!! :D I also went with the rounded 2 corners and an Anya...What a bunch of Anya Mojo lovers around here!! Great minds!! ;D Have tons of fun darlin, I know you will have the best of times! Cant wait to hear about it since I cant see NM for a while!! Love you!!

Rebecca said...

I'm soooooo jealous that you get to see it before we do! Hope you enjoy it :-) and your card is gorgeous! Just beautifully done in blue!

Yvette said...

Wowzers!!! This is absolutely beautiful Donna! You are such an amazing crafter and HUGE inspiration to me! TFS!!!

Steph said...

I love her hair!! well, I love the whole card, but you did an incredible job on her hair!

I'm going to live vicariously through all of you in your NM plans, I totally dropped the ball and there's no way I'll get tickets now but I can't wait to hear what you think about it!

Fab job as always!
