Today's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is to make a Monochromatic creation!! I have been dying to colour up the lovely Seraphina for some time now!! I think she is my favourite of the new Angels by Annie Rodrigue!!
I decided that I would use neutral colours for everything except those cute, pudgy birdies!! The card base is a 5.5 inch square of kraft cardstock and the patterned paper is a single sheet from My Mind's Eye.
I coloured up Seraphina with my Copic markers and cut her out using a circle Nestabilies set and then cut out the scalloped circle to go around her in Pool Party by SU, which is such a nice soft colour. I pulled out the matching ribbon that goes with it and layered it over some fancy lace trim. Using a large brad, I made the bow to go on top. I also used my new fancy flourish die but found it difficult to not only get out of the die itself but to find some adhesive to hold it down properly. I used my quickie glue pen but it didn't seem to hold it too well. I'll have to do some research on that to find something better because I love the die itself!
Lastly, I sparkled up the little birdies a bit by dotting some glitter with my Stardust gel pen and smudging it around with my finger. Also I added it to her wings! So soft and pretty...I love the way it turned out!
