Time Out Challenge #244 Monochromatic

  Hi there Crafty Friends! It's time for another  Time Out Challenge. This week we want you to make a 'MONOCHROMATIC' card. 

For the purposes of our challenge, this means using only shades of one colour with a possible addition or touch of neutrals (white, black, grey, brown). You could for example use all blues on a white card base... But stamp your sentiment on black on white card. We also allow a touch of metallics so heat embossing with a metallic powder/adding metallic gems will work too. 

Using co-ordinating papers from a Design paper pad made it very easy to make a Monochromatic card with various shades and different patterns. I tore the paper in strips, layered them and die cut the panel. The pot plant was left uncoloured, which I quite like. I used a black matte to tie in with the stamped image. 
The paper is from Kaisercraft and the stamp from Altenew.

The winner of our challenge will win a $15 credit from our generous sponsor -Varada Sharma and will also have the chance to be Guest Designer in a future challenge.

We have Stephanie Serrano of Stephanie's Stampin Spot, joining us as Guest Designer. You can see her amazing card and more inspiration from our fabulous DT at the TIME OUT CHALLENGES blog. I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.

  Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)
