My Monochromatic Magnolia Card

This is quite new to me. Working "without colours".
When I saw the challenge Monochromatic in The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge, and then at Stamps & Fun = Creativity, I thought I'd do this "properly". I wanted to make it a bit old-fashioned, a little bit shabby chic.
I had to use a little time on the planning of this one, both which papers to use, what to do with them. And of course which Tilda to use, and how to colour her without using "proper colours"...
(for her skin I used Ivory, then Warm Grey 1, and then blended them well together . think that worked quite nice)
A while ago I bought a jar of UTEE, and have read about the use of it, but never really come to try it. Now I decided to do that. I put on five (5!) layers of this stuff on the image, then put it into the fridge.
Oh, how excited we were (Hedda and I) when we took it out of the fridge and started "cracking" it - we both think it turned out really nice.
The banners are homemade.
Inside the card I've used the same colours, and distressed in the same way.

  9. Thanks for the points you have discussed here. Another thing I would like to mention is that computer system memory needs generally go up along with other innovations in the technological know-how. For instance, when new generations of processors are introduced to the market, there is usually a corresponding increase in the type calls for of all computer system memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the software operated by means of these processors will inevitably rise in power to leverage the new technological know-how.
