Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Wednesday (and Challenge)


Happy Hump Day!  Today I am sharing with you a card I created for Whimsy Stamps using Poppy Love.  The challenge this week is to create a monochromatic card.  I must say that I don't believe I have ever created a monochromatic card, but was up for the challenge.  I decided to go with a yellowish-green color scheme. 

Here's my card...

Poppy Love

I created a 5x5 card using cardstock form Michaels.  I used my Spellbinder's Label #17 to cut a design at the bottom of the card.  I then used CTMH stamp to stamp the sentiment.  I added some flowers from Wild Orchids and flourishes from Cheery Lynn.  I used Copics YG11, Y00, and YG01 to color the image.  The ribbon was from my stash and the key was part of a set I found as going through my craft draw.

Make sure you head over to the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenge blog and join us for this week's challenge.  I would love to see how you do monochromatic.

Thanks for looking and commenting.
