La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Monochrome

Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY! YAY, it's the weekend :D

As you know, each Monday and Friday the design teams from La-la Land Crafts bring you a new & inspriational theme. Play along with any of our themes and enter your link into our Customer Gallery for your chance at winning our monthly prize. 

This week's theme is...


(For an image, the term monochrome is usually taken to mean the same as black and white or, more likely, grayscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single color, such as green-and-white or green-and-black. It may also refer to sepia displaying tones from light tan to dark brown or cyanotype (“blueprint”) images, and early photographic methods such as daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes, each of which may be used to produce a monochromatic image. --

I made a tag featuring Travel Marci , Hot air balloon die, Flourish Die (for the leaves) & Heart Fence Die. The sentiment is from Cupid Marci.

I coloured it up using Copic Markers - C1 through C9 and 0

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've used the Flourish Die to make the leaves behind them. They are all different sizes so the 'leaves' suit large and small flowers. 

The Fence is mounted onto 3D foam and Marci is mounted onto the fence with 3D foam so there is loads of dimension. I also added an acetate date embellishment, some 3mm pearls and pearl spray. The polka dot ribbon is in my stash a long time, I got it in a Raspberry Ribbon kit.
