Monochromatic - and i'm not talking about the weather !!

Hello to all my fellow crunchies ...........  are you all ok ????  It's very wet and horrible here in Taunton, lots of flooding - had to go miles out of way to get kids to school - but they got there and now my day is my own ......... wonderful.....

Today's challenge over on my Challenge Blog - The Cutie Pie Challenge - is monochromatic.  You are allowed to use other colours for hair and skin.  The prizes are wonderful as always.  Being a DT member is fab and I love it ........ it certainly makes you think about trying something different on your cards.

Anyway when this challenge came to light - I just knew that "Harley Boy" by Prairie Fairy was gonna be the focal point of my card.  I have coloured him in greys - a cool biker dude indeed.

I had just purchased a gorgeous embossing folder - Timepiece by Couture Creations - very steampunk,  and used this on a patterned paper which I then chalked using Dovecraft chalks to highlight the embossing.  The papers are the Liquorice Capsule collection by Papermania.  The images and embossing were layered with black card from stash.  The sentiment is by Creative Expressions - from their Steampunk Dreams range.

I hope this has inspired you and that you hop on over to the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog and join in this fun challenge.
