Monochrome at Fashionable Stamping



 Hi All,

The challenge this fortnight over at FSC is Monochrome.

I seem to have made a few monochrome cards lately, but never just used green.  For the background I sponged Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint DI ,  the various stamps - CI Flourish - Tim Holtz ticket, cogs and clock Kanban) were all stamped with Bundled Sage, the TH sentiment was stamped with Winter Green Versa Colour and heat embossed.  The flower was punched out of Pearlised paper that had been distressed with Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint DI.   The main image is from Kanban Jasper Steampunk Set, coloured the dress with Promarkers, lots of  Glamour Dust on the dress and  swirls, although it doesn't show in the photo. I  used foam pads to give a bit of dimension.  I didn' realise that green was such a hard colour to photograph - or at least it was for me!

The rest of the DT have made some fabulous creations, so please pop over, and of course, we would love to see your creation.  As usual there is a great prize on offer for one lucky winner.

I would also like to enter this in the following challenges:
  Gingersnap Creations - Glorious Greens
  Crafty Cardmakers - Monochrome
  Crafts & Me - New image
  Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
  Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
  Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes - No patterned paper

Thanks for looking,

Avril xx

I love the greens you've used, Avril, they look great, so fresh and springlike. That Kanban steampunk set is gorgeous isn't it, I've been really tempted but resisted..... so far.
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.
