DeNami Blog Hop - Monochromatic

Hi everybody



DeNami April Blog Hop


Welcome to the DeNami Blog Hop, today it's all about monochromatic!  I have really enjoyed making a card for this because I rarely do monochromatic cards, I always tend to add in lots of different colour, although if you look very carefully you will see I did have to add in a teeny weeny bit of green on my middle robot just so that my sentiment would work!  Cheating?  Probably, but I'm hoping I won't be in too much trouble ;o)  I didn't quite plan my card well enough before I started!

Here is my card..


I used the little 'Friendly Robot' for my card, he's just SO adorable and great fun to colour too!  I often go for elegant on these hops but this time I thought I'd just go for something fun.  I think the card is pretty self explanatory so other than using my Copic markers to colour them in I just used up a scrap of polka dot paper, twine from The Twinery and Lawn Fawn 'Harold's ABC' for the sentiment, plus a little MME button to finish.  (If anyone can tell me how best to photograph Cryogen cardstock I would be really grateful.  I found it quite difficult with the shimmer!)

Here are  the details of the hop..

  1. I think you're safe, Ruby. I can't see the green! I LIKE that you picked orange, a color that I'm not very good friends with, but love to see what others do. The robots are so cute!
