Just Add Monochrome

Paris in the Spring



There's a challenge at Just Add Ink to Just Add Monochrome to your papercraft project this week.

According to Wikipedia, Monochrome describes paintings, drawings, design or photographs in one colour or shades of one colour. For an image, the term monochrome is usually taken to mean the same as black and white or, more likely, greyscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single colour.

So with that definition in mind, the team at Just Add Ink would love to see you have some fun and join in with this week's theme!

I chose to use some new goodies that literally arrived the day I sat down to make this card. They're from the gorgeous Summer Mini Catalogue (link on my side bar). If you're a customer (or potential customer) and haven't got your own copy yet, please drop me an email and I'll pop one in the post ASAP.


Here's what I used for 'Paris in the Spring' -
Stamp Sets: Artisitic Etchings, Easter Blossoms (new)
Cardstock: Glossy White
Ink: Black StazOn, Basic Gray
Accessories: Basic Black DSP from Neutrals Patterns Stack, Newsprint DSP (for rolled rose), Presto Patterns Specialty DSP (new) - this was sponge daubed with Basic Gray ink to reveal the pattern), White Signo Gel Pen, Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die (new), Modern Label Punch, Vintage Trinket (new), Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon (retired)
