This week we are sponsored by STAMPlorations so be sure to check out the CASology blog for all the details!
OK, so I have to be honest. I have participated in every CASology challenge since it began, and this has been the toughest cue card for me to date! (I guess 134 is a charm!) I had to Google exactly what "monochrome" meant and I also searched Pinterest for inspiration. What I found out is that monochrome images are in black and white or varied tones of the same color. Here were some images I came across that serve as good examples:
OK, so these images made me realize that I have several patterned papers in my stash that could be considered monochrome (i.e., several tones of the same color). I paired them up with a chunky die cut from Simon Says Stamp and went to town!
Here are a few samples I started out with, using purples, greens and pinks:
Here is what I came up with in the end.
I tried to add some interest by outlining the die with a glitter pen. Can you see the shine?
Since I used all Simon Says Stamp products (sentiment stamp and die) and added sparkle to it, I'll also be entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #12: So Sparkly.
You must know I am particularly interested in seeing what MONOCHROME means to you this week...especially since I was so stumped! Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!
