Monochromatic Colours

This week the wonderful Gerda returns with another challenge for us – monochromatic colours.  So, your task, should you choose to accept it (where have I heard those words before) is to create a piece using only one colour, in different shades.  This can sometimes be a challenge, but the effects can be amazing.  Have fun everyone!

    I love how a color themed challenge (or altered book for that matter) gives you the freedom to mix and match various images and elements, things you might not dare to try – when the only rule is to stick to the color.
    Thanks for sharing!
