Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge #20

Hi everyone!  Today is Tuesday so that means it's time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge.  Our lovely Gaelle selected the challenge this week and she is asking that we go monochromatic.  I really struggled with trying to create something using only one color family, so this was not an easy challenge for me.  But in the end, I think Nikki looks rather lovely, if I do say so myself lol!  


I used Winestool Nikki on my card.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I used lots of Glamour Dust to make her dress and matching shoes sparkle.  I guess I thought she needed lots of glitter so she didn't look too drab with the beige/brown color combo.  I also added some sparkle to her glass.  I used my MS punch for the branches and my flowers were made using EK Success punhes.  I added some pearls to finish my card. 


Be sure to stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to check out the amazing work by the DT, and I hope you find time to play along in our challenge.  You can find all the wonderful LCI stamps, felt, ribbon, buttons, and more over in the shop
