Monochrome at SFTW

Good morning every. It feels like I have bee away forever! I have just come back from my family holiday in Mexico so I have rather a lot of catching up I am afraid. So if I haven't been to visit in a while it's because I have been lounging around the pool cocktail in hand! Back to reality this morning. I am working from home today and having huge headaches with my internet. If it carries on I am going to have to pop into work and nobody wants that!!!!.

Any way onto todays challenge over at Stampin for the weekend. We want to see monochrome cards this time and what that means is shades of only one colour. Our very generous sponsor this time is Simon says stamp, who are offering a gift voucher worth $25  to the winner. How good is that?.

My DT card


I have gone for a really simple card this time. A Craftwork cards base and a simple stamped image by Woodware stamps. I have used Copics in shades of grey and complemented the whole thing with some grey Bazzill card. I dont think you can see from the picture but to add some texture I ran a piece of white card though my Cuttlebug using a polkadot folder I bought from the Glitterpot.




Thanks for popping by and do take the time to check out the fabulous cards by my talented team mates at SFTW.

Hugs
Jayne

Thank you for your visit to my blog and your lovely comments. I love this card - the monochrome colouring is so effective and the image is gorgeous.
When I post a card on my challenge week, do I post just the card on diva's blogger without any information. Am I correct that Rebekah links the cards to the various posts.
Love Sharon. x
