Monochromatic Christmas

Good Morning Everyone, 

Hope you are all well. I can not believe it is Friday already this week has gone so quickly. 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Pattie's Creation Design Challenge Blog. 

This weeks theme is Monochromatic 

For this challenge I used Pattie's cute little Pearl the Penguin .. Isn't he delightful. You can buy him from Pattie's store here

I coloured the image in using promarkers, it was my first attempt at doing sepia and it was hard to work with just the three/four pens that I had selected, having to step away from the usual pink/purples was a task in it's self. 

Hope you like him. .

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Fab "n" Funky - Christmas in July- 16/7
Inky Impressions - Christmas In July - 16/7

Love the sepia tones, well worth the pain of using just three shades of the same colour and not a pink or purple in sight! lol Cute image too
