Monochromatic Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability!

When we were choosing our upcoming challenges a few months ago, I had to make a decision for my challenge. I don't know how to make a sketch. Usually I have a rough time getting all the ingredients to work like I want them to for a recipe challenge. SO...The question I asked myself was, "kraft or monochromatic?" Now, months and months later, my challenge is for you to share a monochromatic project with us over at Guylou's Inimitability. Should you decide to play along, you have until 10 p.m. EST on March 29. There's a $10 prize and GDT spot for the winner!

Here is my card for the challenge using Papa Bear.
Sentiment from Stamp Camp
I was so happy to find a use for this paper! When I first started making cards, I bought a lot of 12x12 pads and now find that a lot of the patterns are a bit big on cards...

Hope to see you in the challenge!

Challenges: Ditzy Craftyness - AG with Buttons, Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Feathers or Fur, Shelly's Images - Anything Goes, Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Add a Sentiment, Card Makin' Mamas - Buttons


  1. I know just what you mean Trina. There are some absolutely gorgeous 12 x 12 papers out there, but their big patterns get lost on cards. Thank goodness someone was smart enough to start making them in 6 x 6 size. :-) I think your bear is awesome and I love the fun sprinkling of buttons. :-) Hugs!

  2. Oh, I really like the tans with this bear. And the buttons. I love buttons! I think you chose monochromatic because you wanted to really challenge us. This one sure was a challenge for me! I guess I should thank you for making me step outside my comfort zone, but I will do that after I curse you a bit first, k? Ha ha!! Just kidding. Oh, on a different topic, let me know when your prize pack makes it to you so I will stop worrying (as if I could do anything about it, anyway).

  3. This is fab love your image so cute, Thank you for joining us at Ditzy craftymess challenge this fortnight, good luck!
    Hugs Rachael xx

  4. I like the colors, Trina and the green piping and stitching on the vest really take this image to the next level. Great Card! Like Gina, I sorta groaned when I saw monochromatic, but everyone rocked it, so I guess we HAVE to forgive you.

    Be well,

  5. Oh Trina .. he is so cute and perfectly colored! Thanks so much for joining our "ANYTHING GOES" challenge at Shelly's Images! Please come back and join us again real soon!!
