La-La Land Crafts is Going Monochromatic!

Hello friends!
Hope you had a great weekend!  I'm here to share some more inspiration with you from
La-La Land Crafts!

Today is another Inspirational Monday over at the La-La Land Crafts blog!
This week it's all about "Monochromatic"
Be sure to check out the blog for more inspiration from the rest of the team!

Here's what I've made for my monochromatic design:
This time I've used this adorable Bumble Bee Marci as I thought she would be a great image for a monochromatic yellow idea! :)  I've kept the card to an A2 standard size this time and everything here will be able to lay flat nicely in the envelope when I send it along! :)

I've used the sun from the Stitched Sun and Clouds die to tuck behind the image panel as if the yellow sun is trying to peek through.  I've also used the fun Stitched Zigzags dies to make a fun border behind the image panel too.  I think they look great stacked together in different colors.  I've also used this adorable Build-a-Bee die for my bee accent next to Marci!  I've die cut the wing portions from the die with vellum and then glued them on the bee and curled it up a bit to give it some dimension.  I've also went over the wings with some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen for some shimmer.  (Of course it's so hard to photograph this!)

I found the perfect "bee" papers to use for my background and matched up the colors with it.  The papers and colors are from Stampin' Up! in the "Hello Honey" color.
Here's a closer look at some of the details that's hard to capture:
I've used some fine clear glitter on her wings.  As mentioned above, I've used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the bumble-bee wings.  I've also used it on the bottom portion of her dress and at the ends of her antennas.  I've also taken a white gel pen and added some dots around it as well.  Still hard to see unless you are holding the card up close and personal as you turn it...the whole thing is so sparkly! :)  Of course the added clear sequins helps with that as well!

Hope you've gotten inspired with my creation today!  I'm so glad you've stopped by!
See you again soon!
