Monochromatic Craft Room

Hi all,  it's my turn to choose the theme this fortnight over at Craft Room and so I'm challenging you to create a project in monochrome.

The dictionary definition of monochrome is 'the state or condition of being painted, decorated etc in shades of a single colour'. I love the simplicity that using just one colour creates so get choosing your favourite and show us how inventive you can be with just one colour.

Our sponsor this time is Tando Creative.
Tando Creative
Our fab design team have made some wonderful projects for your inspiration - it would be lovely if you could visit them too, and here's the card I did - 

I don't usually don't do sport themed stuff, but this is one of the new release stamps from another of our Craft room Sponsors - Stamp Addicts, so as I was making samples for them I killed two birds with one stone!
It's a lovely vintage image which I've stamped in Archival Coffee and teamed with embossed and sanded walnut stain distress core-dinations card. The Background 'Happy Birthday' is also from Stamp Addicts. 

I hope you join in with our challenge this time and look forward to visiting you....Esther xx

You can catch Stamp Addicts on Create and Craft today -  Tuesday 22nd Jan, 1.00pm and 6.00pm
