BGC#63 - Monochromatic with Aneta


Hello!

It's new day with quite new inspiration for you. Because the weather behind my window doesn't look optimistic (it's rather gloomy), I decided to create very optimistic (and monochromatic!) card. I used two shades of yellow and a little bit of black (sentiment) and white (around the sentiment and white pearls). In this way I made the card full of sunlight. Just look at it!


As you can see, this time I played with different dies. I cut out bigger and smaler elements and combined them. This simple idea gave very interesting results.

Here is what i made ! 
 As you can see i went with the blue green family of colors !
Teal is one of my fav colors and it always works with the neutrals !

 I have been trying to get my hands on one of those feather dies but somehow my local store is always out of stock !! so i just hand cut these ones ! Not a big deal but i am definitely gonna get those feather dies. 
They are so in trend at the moment !
 I have used some frantage embossing enamel on the feathers to give them that dreamy look. 
And added some twine made into a bow with some pearls to finish the look. 


For the background i just went with one of the lovely ombre paper from crate paper's  flea market collection.
Over which i did some ink splatter in black and teal (lindy's Stamp gang mists) 
  So thats about it on how i did this card !
Please do enter this challenge :) 

the winner will receive a lovely prize from
