Monochrome!

Hello all!

Today I have a much needed Day off, so I have been and done a little shopping and then got crafty and made my card for this weeks LIM challenge where the theme is 'Monochrome'.

Now when I think of monochrome I usually think of black and white. So I had a bit of a think about the design and colours and came up with this... Monochrome in green

...and of course the inside!

Well I liked the result so much and it was created so quickly and easily I decided to make another, this time in Oranges/Rust colours...

and again the matching decorated inside...


Materials

CS: SU Wild Wasabi, Really Rust (Retired) Whisper White

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Cheer and Wishes, Thanks for Caring

Tools: SU Stampamajig, Sponge Daubers

Misc: Stampin Markers in always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzaz, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, More Mustard and Peach Parfait.


I think I'm going to make a few more of these cards with different sentiments and in different colourways. They would make the perfect gift if you did them as little notelets in a set. Now there's an idea!!

Well that's all for today. I'm off now to have a hop round blogland and see what you've all been up to.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
