Little Green Men

How about some Monochromatic Magic? 

This week’s challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Karen. She wants us to create a monochromatic card. In order to do that you would choose one or more shades of one color along with ONE neutral color to use in your creation. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! :)  

I thought it would be really cute to do a little green man today with this very fun set from TSG called Out of This World.  It's so super cute isn't it?  


I stamped this little guy onto the smaller planet in the set and then colored him up with Copics (YG11, YG13, YG16, G21, G24, G28) and then gave him some shadow as he's  being lit by "something out there :)".  The sketch is this months' SFYTT from Jen Del Muro.



I've given the stars along the bottom a touch of glitter pen so they're actually shiny, and used my NEW Spellbinders :)  Labels Eighteen which is an awesome die!  I've added the sentiment tabs outside the main card design, 'cause you know he's out of this world :)  

So now you're invited to join us in this monochromatic challenge!  To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes monochromatic coloring, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Apr. 25th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store! 


By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :) 

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG103 so we can check out your beautiful work!

That is one cute little green alien!! Those greens really are nice, funny how when we think of monochromatic that isn't the color that usually comes to mind. TFS
