Good morning friends. Found a new challenge to play along with last night while I was blog hopping some of my favorite ladies. I love checking out Colleen's blog as she always has something pretty for me to look at, and this time was no exception when I saw the card she made for a challenge I had never heard of. When I saw the beautiful inspiration photo for this new challenge I knew right away I was sunk and was going to have to play! They want you to make a monochromatic card using the color Old Olive (SU!), which has always been a favorite of mine! I knew right away the card I wanted to do too, but had to wait till this morning for some light to photograph it! :0) Take a look:
A very simple card to put together, but I just love the monochromatic look and of course the color Old Olive! I used SU!'s "Blooming with Kindness" flower stamp and the "Weathered" (retired) background stamp. After inking up both stamps, I did use my Aqua Painter directly to the stamps to give them a bit more of a watercolored effect. (If you click to enlarge the picture, you'll be better able to see the watercolor effect) The sentiment stamp is also a retired oldie, but one I still find myself using a lot...love the font on this one! I finished with a little bit of jute to add a touch of dimension to the card. Here is the photo that so inspired me:
Isn't that just the prettiest photo?! I'd tell you to paly along with this great challenge, but there's only a couple hours left (leave it to me to find it at the last minute!!). But definitely check out all the great cards this challenge inspired right here . And thanks Colleen for clueing me in to this great challenge!!
Have a great Monday everyone and thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!! :0)
