Monochromatic Doilies

I absolutely love monochromatic cards, so I just had to do the challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.  The sketch I've used is this weeks' Splitcoast Sketch Challenge.

I dug out my Flirtatious Specialty paper and used the Wisteria Wonder along with Crushed Concord.  It's the first time I've used fabric with my Big Shot - but since it matched I just had to!!!   For the doilies on the Wisteria paper I used white embossing powder.  I didn't want to clutter things up with another punched piece for a sentiment, so I decided to use Staz On to stamp on the jumbo brad.

The first day of school was good - I love doing door supervision in the morning because I get to greet everyone!  And I tell ya - I don't think I'm going to have any problem with working half days!

Hope your day has been fantastic also - thanks for visiting.

Ohhh, {sigh} how I love this set. This is beautiful! Love the white embossing and the fabric. Great idea. Don't worry Joan, about the new punches in my stamp room. Wish I could say I thought to store them open but I saw it somewhere else. That's the beauty of the stamping/blogging world of today:) Thank you for joining us at HSS!

Okay, I have to say I really loved your card when I first looked at it, but after reading about it, I bet it just feels so yummy, too! So many great elements and I agree, monochromatic is so fun. Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork at Hand Stamped Sentiments!!!

Oh, great job! I love how you kind of mirrored the DSP with your stamping! The white really stands out here. Love the jumbo brad too, gotta get mine out! Thanks for playing with us at HSS!
