It’s time for another challenge so let’s make it Monochromatic! Choose your favorite color and create using only varying shades of that color. It can be tricky to stick with one color so treat yourself to some practice! It will stretch you, but it’s also lots of fun to try something new and different.
We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, October 16 at 11:59PM ET.
For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $50.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! Everyone who enters a challenge has a chance to be the random drawing winner! Woohoo!
We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges, you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN, so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!
Design Team Inspiration
Christy‘s Halloween card features a stenciled moon with an eerie glow! She kept the colors to shades of gray blue, making the Fangtastic Friends bats and spiders a brighter shade so they will stand out.
Samantha‘s Halloween design is so fabulous in all the shades of purple! She started with the Brick Stencil, adding the design to Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, then she added fun details from Purrfectly Wicked, Pick of the Patch and Just Add Glitter. And then the ghosts from Booyah and cute little birds from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters came out to play!
Catherine‘s frosty color palette is perfect for the adorable Snowball Fight scene she created. I love the reflection on the “ice” of the Stitched Pond and the snow drifts she stenciled using the Hillside Stencils. As a finishing touch she added snow with the Snow Flurries Background Stencil and White and Fairy Dust Stencil Paste.
Samantha gave her lovely Autumn design a golden glow with Distress Oxide ink in Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade. Then she used Birch Tree Stencils to add texture with White Stencil Paste. She machine stitched some vellum Stitched Leaves, then added a sentiment from You Autumn Know.
Mimi kept her Snowball Fight slimline scene to cool shades of blue violet. I love how she substituted snowballs for letters in her Henry’s ABCs greeting! In the background she created the snowy landscape with Over the Mountain Borders, and she also snuck in one of the cute Mice on Ice.
Franci‘s quick and clever card is so much fun! She added a beautiful gradient of pinky purple to a square panel, then cut out Giant Trick or Treat! Even the little spiders from Fangtastic Friends are sporting the pretty monochromatic color!
It’s the ghoul’s night out in fabulous teal! Combining Booyah and Giant Trick or Treat, Jenn created an amazing Halloween card! She stenciled the background with both Nighttime Sky Stencil and Starry Sky Stencil in Distress Oxide Uncharted Mariner. She also used Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke and Uncharted Mariner. How awesome is the glittery addition to the giant greeting!
We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 WEEKS and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 133 – Awesome Autumn tomorrow! Now it’s time to get monochromatic!
