Hello and welcome....

A new challenge begins today at Crafty Cardmakers Blog.
Jackie is our host and the theme is 'Monochrome'.  We would like to see your monochromatic creations, these do not have to be black and white.  Anything with hues of just one colour is fine.  We will, of course, be ok with hair and skin colours as well, but your major colour scheme should only have one colour in it.
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home décor, as long as it's monochromatic.
Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!
If you click on the link below it will take you directly to the blog and you will see what the design team have created.
It would be great to see one of your cards entered

#195 Monochrome
This is my contribution to the design team.
It is a 5" square, top folding white card base.
I cut a smaller panel to a 4" square and embossed it using the Dotted Matrix folder.  Mounting foam was added to the back and adhered to the card.
A 3" square panel was then cut and embossed using the Delightful Daisies embossing folder, mounting foam added and a pearl heart to the centre of the daisy and adhered to the card.
I am going to make another card but round the corners as I think it would give it a softer look.

  • white card stock ~ Papermill Direct
  • Dotted Matrix Embossing Folder ~ Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions
  • Delightful Daisies Embossing Folder ~ Spellbinders
  • Platinum Machine ~ Spellbinders
  • pearl heart ~ my stash
All that remains to do now is announce the winner of Saturday's card Name Picker has picked
Congratulations, your card will be winging its way to you soon
Until tomorrow....
