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.
