Friends 24-7


Well, I’m off to Convention WAY too early this morning!  I’ve scheduled posts throughout the week so you won’t miss me!  I’m not going into great detail on any of them, so feel free to leave me a comment or email if you want more information!

This week’s challenge on Late Night Stampers is to make a Monochromatic card.  When I first thought about it, I didn’t know what to do.  Then, I decided I was thinking too hard and that Monochromatic didn’t mean just one color…but the same color tones. 

For this card, I started with a base of Sahara Sand and layered on Soft Suede.  I then added a layer of Bella Bleu Designer Paper and used the ticket corner on each layer.  I wrapped some Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around to the back and adhered.  The bird from Friendsd 24-7 was stamped with Soft Suede ink on Sahara Sand cardstock…then I off stamped the damask stamp in that same set with Sahara Sand in the background behind the bird.  This was layered on Soft Suede.  I stamped Here for You with Soft Suede on Sahara Sand and punched with the large Oval Punch, then layered on the Scallop Oval punched from Soft Suede.  It is raised up with Dimensionals.

What do you think?  I think I achieved the monochromatic look!

Connie, You did achieve the look.
24-7 Set is one of my favorites and as I can see with your card here it fits in a variety of themes, colors and placements on a card.
Very Classy card.
