Ahhhh Coffee! Tuesday Riley DT Challenge

Hello Everyone, today is the second Riley and Company challenge. This weeks challenge is hosted by Patti, and she is challenging us to make a monochromatic card! Everyone is welcome to play along, you can leave a comment on the Riley and Company blog with a link to your card, or upload to SCS and put RILEY0210 in the keyword so we can see your creations! Also whenever you upload a card made with Riley and Company stamps to SCS, if you put riley or sophie in the keyword then it will appear in the Riley and Company gallery at SCS so we can all admire it!

Okay I have to admit, I struggled with this one! monochromatic is hard when it's an image you would normally colour, so I wasn't sure if I could colour my image as usual and then use like colour papers...hopefully this is monochromatic enough!

I used Cafe Riley, he looks so cozy, I wouldn't mind joining him! I coloured the image with copics, in colours that I thought matched my paper.

Bravo burgundy copic R59 cardinal
Kraft copic E43 Dull ivory

The card base is burgundy with a layer of dp I bought a couple years ago in a big pack from Costco.

The corners are an EK punch, with a half back pearl added. The main imager and the corners are popped up.

The bottom edge is a MS edge punch, topped with kraft taffeta and burgundy ribbon.

Stamp: Cafe Riley
Paper: bravo burgundy, kraft, white, dp
Ink: memento tuxedo black
accessories: copics, EK corner punch, MS edge punch, ribbon, dimensionals, half back pearls

Have a great day, and I hope you can play along!
