CHNC challenge 82: monochrome

The week's go by so quickly and here we are getting towards the end of July already. If you haven't yet started thinking about making Christmas cards perhaps you can be tempted to do so by going over to my CHNC challenge 82 - this week I'm asking to see monochromatic cards, either black and white or mainly various shades of one colour.

This is my card for the challenge, using 'sliding penguins' digital stamp from Digi Doodle Shop who are this week's sponsors of CHNC challenge 82.

I've used Merry Monday sketch 16 for my card which is my third entry for Merry Monday sketch with a twist, where we were asked to use any of their past sketches and make 4 cards during the month of July.

I used a black card blank and three strips of white and silver Kanban card. I coloured the penguins with copics (not that there was much colouring to do) and added stickles glitter glue on the snow drifts. The sentiment was generated on computer and printed. The snowflakes were cut with a Woodware punch.

This is also for:

Marker pop 3: black and white
Creative card crew 15: black card stock
Crimbo crackers 20: penguins (or animals)
Christmas stampin all year long 20: sketch - any sketch you like
Ruby's rainbow 33: cute animals
