Monotone

Good morning everyone, March is marching on and it's Monday again - time for another challenge over on the Make My Monday challenge blog. This week the challenge is to create a clean and simple card using one colour and it's various tones - MONOTONE.
Here is my card


My colour of choice was Island Indigo, I inked my stamp and then stamped it on to scrap paper before stamping on to the card stock. The sentiment was stamped over the top - full strength. A little sponging was added to the edges along with some stamped butterflies. A few sparkly gems were added for a finishing touch.

All materials used are Stampin' Up
Stamps: Love and Sympathy, Precious Butterflies (retired)
Ink: Island Indigo
Card Stock: Whisper White, Island Indigo
Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, Sponges
(All current Stampin' Up items can be ordered through me and delivered direct to your door - please see the details above in the top tabs - thank you).

I do hope I get to visit all your blogs to see your CAS Monotone cards, there's more inspiration waiting for you over on the blog - the DT have made some beautiful cards this week - perhaps I'll see you there. Bye for now - Jacqueline xx

  7. I love the tranquil feel of this card and your sponged and butterfly-embellished frame really draws attention to that beautiful verse. Vicky x
