TLT - Monochrome Gaelle Style

We're BACK - said in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice (wow, that's a tough last name ya know)?  Anyway, this week we're doing it Gaelle's way - monochrome.  Well...I cheated; I just COULD NOT force myself to make a blue cake - tee hee!  But other than that I'm all blue...should have used some different shades of blue - sorry Gaelle!  :D

I used the wonderful Make A Wish Nikki - love, love, love this image!  Colored with Copics of course, some paper piercing, a tag, scrumptious ribbon, a beautiful button, twine, dimensional pearls and that's it.  I used the layout from Mojo Monday (#182).

The tag was actually created using the b-day dies from PTI; I used the middle and small birthday "boxes" to create the layered tag!

Won't you join us this week and create your own monochrome card?  Any image can win; doesn't have to be an LCI image!

Hope you have a great week; hugs, ~M.


WHAT'S IT TAKE?
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Make a Wish Nikki
Papers:  DP by SU!, GKD white, PTI Spring Rain
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copics, nesties, EK Success border punch, PTI button, tag
