October Challenge - Monochromatic

Hello, and welcome to the Christmas Craft Creations challenge for October!

This month our theme is Monochromatic - please make sure you are only using shades of one colour on your design. Monochromatic doesn't mean you have to stick to black, white and shades of grey - we have lots of stunning inspiration for you from our team and guests which show just how varied you can get with a simple colour palette!

For those of you who play along with us this month, we have some lovely prizes up for grabs. In no particular order, they are:

Prize 1
Hero Arts - Dots Background Cling Stamp (preloved) and Stripes Background Cling Stamp (preloved), donated by Angela

Prize 2
Penny Black - Holly-Days Clear Stamp, donated by Michelle

Prize 3
Mystery prize pack, donated by Charlotte (UK/EU only)
The prize winners will be picked randomly from among those entrants who have followed all the rules, which are in the sidebar if you need a refresher. If you have a preference as to which prize you'd like (or if there are any you definitely don't want) please leave a comment below letting me know, and I will do my best to keep those preferences in mind when drawing winners. 

We are excited to have two Guest Designers joining us this month. 

First, we have Heather of Heather's PagesHeather was the winner of the August challenge. Here is the fantastically festive card she made:

Plus we have the lovely Prudence of _penguinparade on Instagram back with us again this month. Prudence has made a sweet snowy scene for her design:

And here's the inspiration from the team:

Plus, joining in from the reminder team:

We hope that inspires you to join in with our challenge! Be sure to come back in two weeks to see the inspiration from the reminder team.

If you entered last month's challenge, check back next week to see if you were a prize winner, DT favourite or honourable mention!

We look forward to seeing you play with shades for your monochromatic Christmas projects! The deadline for entering is Tuesday November 7th at 6pm GMT.

Reminder: You can find our rules in the sidebar. Please remember to include a link back to our blog along with our challenge graphic. If you're entering from Instagram, you can use the hashtag #ChristmasCraftCreations
