For Mo's Challenge this week, our hostess, Sheila, has asked us to make a monochromatic card. The image can have natural flesh tones and hair color, though! I really don't like blue or gray people...Yuck! My customers don't like cards like that either!
This was done for a customer who wanted a birthday card for a man who is turning fifty.
I love this image! I think I'll be able to use it for a lot of different occasions.
I'm still working on the pointillism effect as a different way to enhance images. I think I'm getting a little better at it. (I hope!)
I made the 'blue ribbon' by cutting two strips of paper 1" x 6", scoring them at 1/2" intervals on one side then flipping them and scoring at 1/4" between the other scores. The pieces were folded accordion-style, adhered together with tacky tape and formed into a circle, then a large dimensional dot was stuck to the back to keep the circle in place.
After adding the streamers and the punched circle number to the front, the dimensional was used to secure the whole thing to the card.
The inside said, "..... For an old man! Happy 50th Birthday!"
Tools: Copics, ScorPal, Tacky tape, Dimensional dot, Circle Punches
