Dynamic Duos #8 - Monochromatic


DD # 8 - Monochromatic

I love monochromatic challenges and this week at Dynamic Duos we have a beautiful combination of 'earthy' colours.  River Rock is not everyone's 'cup of tea' but it's definitely my cup of 'coffee' because I was pretty happy when SU decided to bring it back and it looks fantastic teamed up with Always Artichoke.

 

For my card, I inked up my new Coffee Cozy Set from Lil' Inker Designs to make a birthday card for hubby.  It should read, "I LOVE you more than coffee" and that would be 'saying something'!  :)


 


Be sure to check out all the other Dynamos for some 'monochromatic' inspiration -


Happy crafting!

PS:  Here's a card I did a while back in the same colour combo -

As I sit here sipping my Starbucks....I just love this one Bronwyn! Such a wonderful way to feature the colors and I especially like the notebook punched border and the ric rac trim. Everything just works so perfectly together. That easel card is pretty fabulous, also. I love that stamp set with the coordinating puches. Hope you have a fun day today! Big hugs! :)

I love River Rock too Bron! You have an amazing talent my friend, this coffee set with the chevron on the side is adorable! Love that original easel card too!

Carol L said...

You really work these colors well together on both cards! It's a lovely combo, and I love the chevrons and punched border on the first. The shaped card is just lovely and I love the bird! NJ on both!

Wow - love this card Bron! Love that coffee cup and the steam swirls coming from it! This colour combo is one I never used before, but I'm going to give it a go as it's really great!

What a fun card to or from a coffee drinker! I need that stamp for my hubby. It's perfect in these colors and I love your layout. PS I was glad when they brought back River Rock too. Thanks for the inspiration, Bronwyn.
