Aloha and welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes. Nina's off enjoying herself in New York but we continue with another fabulous challenge by Patti Nelson to use any PCC image and make the card monochromatic. Now I admit I checked with Patti before finishing mine to make sure we could use other colors in coloring the image and she said I could do whatever! YEAH! I wanted to use this "Poppies" image and couldn't imagine coloring it any other colors but what I did and I knew the rest of the card would be overwhelming if done in reds or greens. So I chose to use the sky color for my monochromatic color scheme...that's Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, and Blue Bayou. It's a tall card (4x9) too. Here's picture of the inside:
In Flanders Fields" for the inside...reason for this? My dad is active in his local VFW post and around Memorial Day he helps give away "buddy poppies" at local stores, so when I saw this image I thought of him and then did some research to find where the poppy as a symbol for the VFW came from and that's where I found this poem. Although I'm too late for this year's Memorial Day, I figure I'm either really ready for next year or could give it to him for Veteran's Day!
Just a few other challenges for this one:
1. C.R.A.F.T - Father's Day/Men's cards: although not a typical looking card for a man...maybe?...I really did make this for my dad
2. clean&simple - sketch
3. Cupcake Craft Challenges - one for the boys: see above
4. Magical Crafts Fortnightly - something for a male/father's day: see above
5. Paper Playtime - "In thy face I see Honor, Truth, & Loyalty."
Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what you come up with for this Magical Monday challenge!
