Monochomatic Dottie!

It is Gunn's turn to set the challenge for us over at Dottie's World! What a fabby challenge it is too;
"Hello you all.
It is my turn to deceide this week, and I tried to make an easy challenge this time. I want monochromatic and the color to use is WHITE - you can use from the lightest white to ivory and cream.And for a special extraI want you to use a small touch of the lightest brown. Your charmed ones is allowed to have skin and hair colors. A Charmed Download is a must, so don`t forget that one. Have fun with this one.Gunn."

Now I struggled at first trying to decide which image to use but once I'd actually got going it was such great fun. I also struggled with patterned papers not really having anything that was quite suitable so in the end I decided to stick to a basic white card...eek. Now that's something I don't often do! LOL

As well as skin and hair colours I used just E51 Milky White, E51 Raw Silk and my colourless blender. ( and a tiny bit of pale green which I dulled down with my blender too...hope this isn't cheating tooooo much!) I added a bit of detail with Liquid pearlsd and gave some brads a touch of lustre with a glimmery nail varnish!
Come along and join the fun, I'd love to see what you come up with!

Adele this is so incredible adorable. And I agree with Karen and Nicole, this is really elegant. The embossed panel is so fab. I just love everything about it, and you have done a great job on this challeng.
And I have to say: don`t know what you mean by cheating.... LOL
Hugs Gunn

It's so beautiful Adele. I think this one took us all out of our comfort zones but that was a good thing because it's showed us how effective 'simple' can be.
