It's time for another ...

Are you having fun yet this weekend??? (I'm supposed to be at my Cousin's Reunion but I'm playing hookie just long enough that I can play along with some of my favorite challenges!!)

Today's SSDS challenge is to create a MONOCHROMATIC card/project. Believe it or not, doing mono cards can actually give me grief!! But since I had this awesome image from the Digital-Ink Co already colored and ready to go, I knew exactly what color I wanted to create with today!! And the fact that I just received my pack of the new SU IN-colors & ribbon ... Melon Mambo was my color of choice!! My 17 year old granddaughter is going to love this card!!

My digi image was colore with SU watercolor pencils & blender pens ... then once dry, gone over again with the pencils. Crystal Effects was added to the car to make it shiny (like a new car should look). The Bazzill paper flower has a brad center that says LOVE (don't know if you can see that unless you click for a closer look) which came from Target. I also used another brad in the center of the ribbon bow at the bottom . Here are all the details on this card:

Papers: Melon Mambo, Basic Grey Porcelain
Inks: Melon Mambo
Accessories: SSDS Image, SU Watercolor Pencils, blender pens, Crystal Effects, Stipple brush, Creative Memories corner rounder, Bazzill paper flower, Target brads, SU Melon Mambo grosgrain ribbon, BOW Easy

To join in on the fun and be eligible for this weeks fabulous prize. Head over to the SSDS blog and link your creation to Mr. Linky by 10:00 pm (EST) Friday (8/28/09) evening. Well ... guess I'd better get back to the Reunion before I'm missed ... boy, I'll really be in trouble!! LOL!! Have a great day & weekend! Do something fun for yourself ... life is too short not to enjoy each day the Lord gives us!!!
