I worked on this today and went to look up the challenge to upload and it seems... maybe... shocking as it will be to read this... I may have misunderstood the assignment.
I saw that House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge is having a challenge calling for monochromatic. I know what that means! One step ahead of the game! Shades of one color. So I whipped up my card. Turned out so much better than I thought although it does not look like how I Ema-gined. Went back and read the blog again once I was done. Finished. Kapoot... only to find out they have written monochromatic plus white. Sssooooo... I looked at the other entries, including the DT's inspiration pieces. I saw a couple with no white so I decided to go with this! We shall find out!
So this is House Mouse Acorn Cap colored with Copics. Sentiment is from Crafter's Companion and the enamel dots are from Your Next Stamp. Monochromatic, right?!? Thanks for looking! :)
