was the one to set the challenge and something had inspired her to go with a monochromatic scheme!! I can't wait to drop into her blog to see what she's been up to!
For me, I decided to go with blues! You see, I have so much scrap in my craft room that I am really challenging myself to use up as much of it as I can. And since I have about 3 times more blue than anything else, I am trying to make blue cards!! :D
This is one of those cards. But I did use the faux watercolor technique. It is one of my favs!! You simple color the rubber image and then mist it with water and stamp onto cardstock. I like to use watercolor paper because the image is very intereting as it dries!! I used one of the many silhouettes in Susan's Cookie Plate and colored it using a blue marker. Once it was dried, I added a bit of blue stickles which you can kind of see in the second picture (if you click on it you should get a larger view). Added a sentiment and a few layers of various shades of blue....and voila, a clean and simple card!
Now, off to see what the other cookies are having for tea:
Make sure you leave a comment and a link to your monochromatic card here or on any of the design team blogs!! We'd love to have you visit for tea :D
