DCM weekly dare - Strictly Monochrom


Great Dare for you at
After the sunshine comes the rainbow!But this is red OR yellow OR pink OR green...This week you can do ANYTHING you like on a card BUT you can only use one colour.
I (Lythan) have been very strict with the team and quite frankly enjoy the power when they come begging to be allowed to use just a hint of one other colour. I did in the end allow black for the sentiment particularly if you do an all white card. But the real idea is to have fun with just one colour and see just what variation there is.
Oh this was a fun dare, thanks Lythan, a bit of a challenge, but heh! that's what it's all about isn't it.. so here is my take on this weeks dare, you can call it Sea Green I think....
So Sea Blue bits that I've used are - Bazzill Cardstock, Making Memories PP, Making Memories metal clip {oh I love these}, Heidi Swapp Blossom {inked with Versa Colour ink pad}, Ribbon from Spotlight, Cloud 9 Chipboard letters, EK Success Alpha Stamps, and My sewing Machine loaded with matching thread.
Be sure to pop over to the DCM blog and check out the rainbow over there, it's beautiful!
So what colour will you use to create with this week....
Come on I DARE you!!!!!!!

I love monochrome - this one is gorgeous and one of my favourite colours.

Lythan said...

Beaut card as ever Gillian. But the controversial question is... is it blue or green? This is my fave colour at the moment. I have ended up with quite a few tops like this and Dh and I have arguments over whether it is turquoise blue or turquoise green...
Well the card is lovely whatever the colour:)

Beautiful card Gillian! Such a wonderful colour. I agree those mm metal clips are great! I have some of them, a bit of metal always looks good on cards.
