Monochromatic Challenge

This challenge at Crafting By Designs is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs. 
The image I used is a SSD Friday Freebie image called Wednesday Sassy.   SSD has many fabulous images, check in the clickable link above! Also, every Friday SSD has a 24-hour freebie image in their Facebook group, a weekly blog challenge, as well as a free monthly progressive Facebook challenge! Come Play!
I used Copic markers in the BV family, mostly. I really like to have real skin tones on my people for a monochromatic challenge, so I used my artistic license a little bit here. I was also trying to find just the right sentiment for an everyday card that would not be too offensive...LOL! The sentiment is from Create with TLC and she has tons of great sentiments!
Thanks for checking out my blog, and here are my color choices: Skin: E04, 21, 51, 550, R11. Bear:  W5, 3, 1. Hair:100, W9, C7, BV01. Clothes: BV29, 25, 23, 20.
The background was quickly water colored with Dioxazine Violet and Payne's Gray. I did not use water color paper, so I watered down my colors and tried to quickly brush them on, adding the colors back and forth to get a look I wanted. I tried to keep it lighter by the sentiment. After this dried I pressed it flat under a few books for the night, then I adhered it to a dark purple cardstock that seemed to match pretty well. Good luck if you play!
