Treasures - Monochromatic is our challenge at Creative Card Crew this fortnight. I have used the Wise Men image from our sponsor Paper Pretties. They have such great images that it was hard to choose.

My DP is Hot Off The Press. It's an old Sarabook - Sapphire. What I love about the DP is that if you look closely at it, it has treasure written all over it. How cool is that with this image!

My punch is EK Success and I added a few gemstones to the lower left corner.

The image is colored with Copic's. It was fun to work with only one color family, then I added the gold to give it some pop. The sketched the rick-rack on the jug with a blue Spica pen.

I hoped you enjoyed seeing my card and I would love to see you join in our monochromatic challenge. It runs for 2 weeks, so you have a long time to get it in.
