Time For A New Challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew

Hi, all! It's that time again! Yepper, time for a brand new challenge at Kenny K and this week, the theme being presented by Team A is "Monochrome". That is to say that we want you to create your project using varying shades of the same color. I have to admit here that this was a huge challenge for me too! Anybody who knows me knows that I am ALL about color so using only one, even in multiple shades was way outside my comfort zone. But I did it and I am quite tickled with the outcome... so much so, in fact, that I created not one but TWO cards using the same basic design and the same digi stamp but in different colors. Once I got started, I couldn't stop and I was very tempted to make a third but I thought my time might be better spent working on future assignments instead. LOL

So, here are two color variations using Frieda Flapper. I had not colored this image before so I had lots of fun with her. She's a party girl to be sure! The first one I did in shades of teal using paper from K & Company and the second is done is shades of red using a combination of DCWV and K & Company papers.  

Which one do you prefer? I can't decide! For more inspiration, visit the Kenny K Krafty Krew blog and see the incredible examples created by my talented teammates. Also, if you're up for making your own New Year's Eve party invitations, see my post for yesterday. I used another of Kenny's awesome designs, "Happy Hour", to make a set of party invitations using WOW Embossing Powders and a non-traditional color palette. I love how they turned out! 

I am entering one or both of these cards in the following challenges:

Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - # 78  Tic Tac Toe (I chose Gens, Ribbon, Flowers)
Crafty Catz Challenge - #158 Anything Goes
Fat Pages and Cards - #26 Add a Sentiment/Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge - #56 - Birthdays
Challenges 4 Everybody - #7 Anything Goes

I'll be back in a couple of days with an entry for Saturated Canary's new challenge and no telling what else. It's so great having a space dedicated to my crafting addiction! So, until next time, have a wonderful weekend and...

Happy crafting!
