Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Monochrome Madness

It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges, for the next two weeks we are asking your to go monochrome.

Now, of course, we are looking forward to seeing lots of black and white designs but, if you wish, you can use one colour.  The Design Team decided that your one colour does not have to be white, black or grey (they also agreed that you will not be penalized for using flesh tones on skin).

Inspired by this idea I decided that I would have a go at colouring an image using just one colour, what do you think?

I coloured Teddy Bo and Co's image 'Dressmaker Bea' with every yellow Promarker I could find.  I then mounted it on some silver mirri.  The yellow paper is from Stampin' Up and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.

So why not share your monochrome madness with the Crafty Boots Design Team and whilst you are there, take a look at the other ideas the Design Team came up with.

Good luck.



  1. Dee this is so fun and I love the seamstress theme and the cheerful mono yellows.

  2. I just love how you have used all the different yellows for the monochrome theme. So clever and such a fab card xx

    1. This is so much fun to do, you must try it sometime. All you need to the right image and a lot of different shades one the same colour.
