Challenge # 23 - Crafting when we can

Today at Crafting when we can challenges our challenge is Monochrome and our wonderful sponsor is

I had the chance to work with Hot Date.  This was a perfect image I find for monochromatic!

The paper that I used is from Desert Bloom by First Edition.  The ribbon comes from my stash.  I used my scallop square to cut out the digi and the matting paper underneath.  The sentiment that I paired it up with comes from TLC and is called "The heat is on".  I really thought this complemented this image well.  I colored up the digi with my copics and just had to add a touch of pink ;) 

I really liked the way it turned out! And when I showed it to work... somebody took it right away for a wedding anniversary.  They liked the fact that it was not the traditional look ;)  Really love it when others like what I make.

I hope that I will have inspired you to play with us at Crafting when we can challenges.
