Monochrome Mania


Ever since I found the My Cardz blog, that I mentioned in last week's Treasure Find, I've been dreaming of trying a monochromatic card.  So here it is...my first attempt.  I definitely need practice but I'm not completely appalled with my first try. It wasn't easy but it was fun.  I will mention I did a practice run first before doing the card.  The Pixie Cottage challenge for this past week was to create a card using a sketch by Jay Jay, with a twist of stamping twice...which I managed to get in.

I will try this again.  If you have done any monochromatic work, please leave me a link so I can check it out.  This is one of the cards going into a batch for Operation Write Home.  If you are a cardmaker and have some time and too many supplies like me, then this a great organization to work with.

Copic Sketch Markers: C1, C3, C5, C7, colorless blender
Stamp: Sandra Hammer
Paper: Basic Grey Ambrosia
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities

Punches: McGill Flower Punch
Ranger: Inkssential's White Opaque Marker, Distress Inks (Black Soot), Clear Embossing Powder
