Monochromatic Challenge

In my stumbling through blogs & Facebook pages this weekend, I came across the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  I was introduced to them through the Operation Write Home Blog, where they have posted some digi freebies from Tiddly Inks.  Adorable images!  I've admired them for many months, & downloaded the freebies they offered.  This will be my first time using their images, but definitely not the last!

I did not have any difficulty in deciding to do this week's Monochromatic Challenge, and downloaded Kiki image.  (Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE dogs!)  All the elements just came together once I knew I was doing a doggie card! 

Working with the image on kraft paper gave me more "play" when adding some low-lights to the image using Copic Markers.  And the look of the wet nose was a technique I've used before on other dog cards that glossy enamel provided.  Here's what I cr8'ed:
Challenge #38: Tiddly Inks Monochromatic Color Challenge
Supplies used:  kraft cardstock, brown cardstock, pattern paper: McKenna by Daisy Bucket, digi stamp image from Tiddly Inks, Copic Markers, paw print punch by EK Success, paw print adhesive ribbon by KI Memories, cork adhesive pads, glossy enamel by Ranger Inkessentials, bone chipboard by DCWV. (Sentiment is printed from Microsoft Word program: Irezumi [font].)

I had great fun with this challenge & love the digi images!  I suspect I'll be participating in more of their challenges!  Yippee!
Happy Cr8'ing!
