Monochromatic Card

Hello! We have a new at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. The theme of our last challenge for this year is Person/People And Choose Another Option (Sketch and/or Color). I am the author of the blog challenge. I created a sketch for the challenge and added a color challenge option. When I was looking for the color of the year, I did not pay attention to the year. Instead of next year's color, I submitted this year's color to our moderator for approval of the challenge theme last November. I am not sure if 2021's color of the year was already chosen last month but since my other co-DT members have their creations submitted using this year's color of the year, we will keep it this way.

I am using an image from one of our sponsors. I chose this image, a nurse, as tribute to the millions of heroic front liners taking care of patients during this pandemic. Now that the vaccines are finally being administered here in the US, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I printed the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. I added a few details on the hair using a black color pencil. I also used gel pens to add accents to the clipboard. 

I die cut this with a rectangle die from Waffle Flower A7 Nesting dies. Using the next larger sized rectangle, I die cut a blue glitter paper to matte the panel with the image. I adhered the image panel to this with foam adhesive.

I trimmed a 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" blue diagonal striped patterned paper. Following the diagonal lines, I adhered blue die cuts of Sugar Pea Designs Heart Beat SugarCut for a tone on tone effect. 

I added strips of light blue dotted washi tape which I ran thru a paper crimper. I heat embossed the sentiment on a light blue cardstock strip using Paper Source Navy Blue embossing powder. I adhered this sentiment strip with foam adhesive. The sentiment is from The Stamping Village Thinking Of You Stamp Set. I rounded the corners with We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I added navy blue sequins for some embellishment.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
