Monochromatic Color Schemes

Well, what did you think of this weeks challenge? Personally, I found it VERY challenging. Now I do love monochromatic color schemes in fashion and home decor because I think it is very sophisticated...(just like me! ....LOL! NOT!!!!) but in a card! oh was a challenge!

I chose Chichibouli's Eva Bloom for my card and decided I wanted to use soft shades of copic B's, BV's and V's because I thought there were enough colors in there for me to work with. So here you go...these are the colors I used:

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E41, 42, 43
Y0000, E40 (for some highlight at the tips of her dress)
BV0000, 000, 00, 11, 31
V0000, 000, 01, 12
B60, 63 (I used this on the egg, but it was too blue so went over it with some BV's)
C00, 0, 1 for shading around her, then added just a bit of cool grey pencil to darken it up a bit
Finally I used a Prismacolor Black Cherry pencil to add some depth to the egg and shadows on her dress.

As hard as I found it, I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Next week we are gonna make it REALLLLLLL easy on is a sketch! I know how you all love a sketch and this one suits my style to a 'T' so I can't wait to get started on it. I also can't wait to see what everyone did with the monochromatic color scheme so be sure to hop on over to Emily's blog later today and check it out! And if you are impatient like I am go stalk the rest of the Babe's blogs to see if you can get a sneak peek! hehehe!
