Monochromatic Challenge

Happy Spring!!  Can you believe it's FINALLY getting here?
After this winter of shoveling WAY TOO MUCH SNOW at home and at the farm, WAY TO COOL WEATHER and WAY TOO MANY CRUMMY drives to work, the snow is melting and heck, some of the flowers are even starting to BLOOM!!

Today at The Bug Blog, we're having a Monochromatic plus 3 buttons challenge for you to join in with us on.
A monochromatic color scheme uses a single color. In this type of scheme, various darker shades, grayer tones, and paler tints of the main color may be included in the palette. In addition, the one color is often paired with white or another neutral.
Add THREE Buttons to that and you've got the challenge for this week!
I just love the little Spring Chicks from Bugaboo Stamps, so this image was just PERFECT to use with the Monochromatic Color Scheme of Red!
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "Spring Chick" Dress
Papers - Cardstocks, Recollecions and Paper Studio
Coloring - Copics
Tools - Nesties & Sewing Machine (stitching)
Extra STUFF - Bling, Satin Ribbon, Buttons, Studio G Sentiment and Stickles

So, what kind of Monochromatic thoughts do you have up your sleeve?  Show us what you got this week at The Catch The Bug Blog!  By joining us in the challenge you have the chance to win Seven, Four or Two Bugaboo Stamps of your choice. 

Well, what are you waiting for?! :)
Hugs & Happy Spring!
