Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 This week it's Monochromatic and our Sponsor is Heather Ellis

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards awesome work ladies and it's lovely to see all those entries.

Well this week is our week with a TWIST and I was so excited to be able to make a Monochromatic card (to tell you the truth I've never made one before).  But when push came to shove I was so worried how it would turn out.  I knew exactly what sketch I was going to be using for the image I had chosen.  But my problem was the colour and where do I start.  So in the end I thought if I go pink, or blue, the grass is going to look funny so that is why I started from the bottom and progressed upwards.  That's why I chose GREEN.

This week I worked with Sketch #005 I loved working with it the first time and it was a very popular sketch.

Sketch #005

I was happy with the way my card turned out but feel that it's missing so blue sky, I tried inking another image I printed off and put a green sky in well it really didn't look right.  It would be like eating a blue tomato.

This week our sponsor is

Hi Kathy! I love this image in green. It is fun to see how we all created our cards this week. It is amazing how different they each can look with just a change of color. Hope you are enjoying your summer. Hugs, Nancy

I laughed when I read that you had never made a monochromatic card either. (I was so worried that I cheated and made a practice one with another sketch earlier in the week) Your card is gorgeous! I love all the greens (I was amused that you, Holly and I all chose the same sketch this week!) So pretty Kathie!

How cute, love the green and super coloring.
We just go more snow this weekend, and we are hopefully in the last deep freeze for the Winter. So looking forward to sitting out side and enjoying the sunshine. Happy Fall to you!
