Double Challenge-Monochromatic Sketch

January 26, 2011 at 8:46 pm 16 comments

Hi again – I’m a stampin’ machine today! I am pooped from not sleeping well the past couple of nights. Part of my problem is that I sometimes nap after work and that RUINS me for the rest of the night. I decided to fight through the fatigue today so that I’ll crash at a decent hour (after watching American Idol auditions!). I am really enjoying checking out the Peachy Keen challenges. This week’s challenge is a sketch and a twist to use a monochromatic colour scheme. This card also qualifies for the Crafts and Me Challenge for a monochromatic card. I don’t make monochomatic cards very often, so thought this would be a good one to try. Here is the sketch:

I wanted to use some of the things I had on my craft table, namely the foliage. So I went from there and pulled out some scrap pieces of patterned paper. Here is what I came up with:

Here is how I put the card together:

Card Stock – Beige, Medium Brown, White
Patterned Paper – MME, retired SU
Ink – Early Espresso, Ranger Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Stamp – With All My Heart (SU)
Accessories – SU dies, Nestabilities Fancy Frame, MS pine punch, brad

I hope you like it as much as I do! Thanks for having a look!
