Monochrome with a pop of color

Hello Blogland. Today I am here with my project for the challenge between BożenA and myself. She has had such patience with me during my time of loss of mojo, move and whatever else. But here we are.

It was BożenA’s choice for the challenge theme and she chose monochrome with one color. I decided that I wanted to do something a little different to using my pencils for this. I had recently purchased this city die set and so used it for this project. I created all the cityscape in cardstock ranging in tones from black to white. I decided that this was a piece for my art journal rather than a card.

I used orange as my pop of color and added it with the flower and the words Stand Up, also cut from various dies in my stash. I printed the remainder of the sentiment with my computer. I completed my page with some doodling around the printed sentiment and some white gel pen accents on the flower and the die cut letters.

This picture below is the inspiration image that I used for my journal page.

I am excited to see what BożenA’s challenge project looks like and I would invite you to visit her and leave her a comment.

  1. I like your idea Monica, how you used those words and created your card with it. The orange is very effective, I like your interpretation. Well done! And apart from the creativity, I like the words – very thought provoking.

  2. WOW! Complete surprise, Monica. I was sure you would use colored pencils, you are so perfect at it. But your idea is just as beautiful. You've captured our subject very well by creating this beautiful city. Flower and sentiment go hand in hand perfectly. The photo you put in your post is also moving. Monica, it was worth waiting for you, your project is touching.
    Thank you for having fun together, and now I'm looking forward to your challenge 🙂

  3. I love this monochrome card. Wonderful design. Believe me, I definitely understand losing mojo. I have no desire to do anything card related right now. I was thinking about maybe doing something with only dies because coloring is not working for me right now. I did just finish an Easter card for my mom. Hopefully, I can get that posted.

  4. Hi Monica! Glad to see you posting again! Thank you very much for the very pretty and thoughtful birthday card, it's hanging on my display and being enjoyed very much. Love your page, the city is so well done and the orange just pops, xoxo
