Challenge #48 Monochromatic
christmas no red and green
someone special
someone special at christmas
wrap it up
black, white plus one other  

Welcome, this is my first challenge as a DT member for Paperplay and I am excited about joining them.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Whimsy stamps.

For this challenge I chose to use "Little Christmas Angel" and she is a beauty.  As the theme for this weeks challenge is Monochromatic I chose Black and White which is a particular favourite of mine at the moment.  I used just the grey tones (copics) warms and cools. 

I used a fine black liner to create the border around the image which is something I like to do as it gives the image more of a frame.

I added stickles glitter glue to parts of the angels wings and holly leaves.  The backing papers were some digital papers from Creative Cottage and the black cardstock was from WH Smiths.

I used ribbon, bow, charm, flowers, pins, pearls and gem to embellish the card.

Nearly forgot and a couple of corner peel-offs.

Hope you like and please take a look at the other DT sample for inspiration.

Many thanks and best wishes,
