Totally Ladybug Tuesday goes monochromatic!

(Please scroll down for my A Spoonful of Sugar DT post!)

Today over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday, the wonderful Gaelle is challenging us to create something monochromatic!  I opted for the traditional and went for black and white...

 

I think Magnum is soooo funny!  I love this Add-On Magnum and you can get an Add-On set with this little fish skeleton and mouse as well as a balloon, present and other uber cute goodies! There is even a sentiment set dedicated to Magnum here - talk about co-ordinated!  I've been dying to ink him up since I saw this version of him on the very talented Gail's blog here. Loved those stripes so just had to have a go myself!  Thx for the inspiration Gail!

I hope you enjoyed my little fella and you can see the other gorgeous DT makes here.  Thanks for stopping by!


I am entering my card into Paper Pretties challenge for masculine cards (I've made this for my brother), the Paper Romance challenge for black and white and one other colour (grey!), Cupcake Craft challenges for 'monochromatic' and the Cupcake Craftroom monthly challenge for black and white monochrome.


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Black Tie paper
Mediums: Copics, Glossy Accents (for his nose!)
Accents: Stampin Up ribbon, button from stash, Divine Twine (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Tools: My Favorite Things border die, Nestabilities square dies

Nothing wrong with classic black and white, in fact it is my favorite and if you are able (not on this occassion) to add a bit of hot pink, my real true favorite.
