The Big Monochrome

Hi there,

Welcome to another Wednesday, these months are going by so quickly at the moment! We have another new challenge for you over at I Love Promarkers, and our theme this time is Monochromatic. Please do let us know what range of Letraset pens you have used for the creation. Our fab sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter . I have used The Bride for my creation:

I used a geometric papermania card base as this was the correct colours for the card. I layered two bands of lace across the bottom of the card front.The bride was coloured with Promarkers and layered onto Anita's gold card. I added this at a quirky angle so that the flowers would fit on nicely. The bloomers are from the Linen colour collection from papermania. I added a fussy cut tag to the bottom and some gems to the centre of the bloomers, to match the brides hair colour.

Promarkers used - Lavender, Winter Berry, Cool Grey 1, Satin, Dusky Pink, March Hare and Oatmeal.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Card Concept #75 Bold and Graphic (Clean and layered)
Inspired by the creams and beiges with geometric patterns and a slight pop of brighter colour
CAGI - Weddings

I would also like to share an update of my fish tank @ 146hr 34:

I also have a couple more goose pictures from the nearby lakes.

And I actually have another Audio Book review for you also!

The Big Four by Agatha Christie
A Poirot mystery that is a little different from the usual. Poirot is facing a powerful group and is determined to figure out who they are and how to stop them from getting away with murder and exploitation. He has his old friend back from South America for a time and so they work together to get to the bottom of the mystery. As they are not figuring out a single event this story is a little more open than usual and also does not give the readers insight into things that would be unknown. This is helped by the first person viewpoint that is adopted.
However, all I could think of whilst listen to the story was that it seemed a lot like a Sherlock comedy. The great detective has a very dumb sidekick, who doesn’t think he is dumb, and lives in a flat where the landlady shows people up to his room and looks after him. After looking into this it does not seem that it was ever supposed to have been based upon Sherlock, but that is certainly how it comes across. I would only read or listen to this book if you are looking for a light-hearted crime story with a lot of comedy in it.

Thank you for looking,
