Default WT144 - Monochromatic Designs

This week for our challenge, the challenge is to find Ways to use Monochromatic color combos. I love monochromatic cards but find I just don't use them enough. Hence the challenge! So have fun with this...use reds, blues, whites, neutrals...whatever...just make it monochromatic and have some fun. And just because I know someone will ask ....yes, that means keep all your inks and papers along the same hues. For example, you could use Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Whisper White cardstock and inks in your design.

Please remember to put WT144 in your keywords section and post the link back here so that we can all see your work. This is challenge to get you stamping so please just link designs you create for this challenge. If you want to make more than one...fabulous! This is also not a contest and there are no time limits on participating in this challenge. If you haven't participated in a challenge before...jump in...we'd love to have you!

My Sample: White Christmas

Linda Bullard: Sleigh Bells Ring

Gallery Submissions

Thanks for playing along! Have fun stamping and have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy this wonderful season!

Julia I love your card it Looks good!! Love monochromatic but are we to add a splash of color as you did with your windows or are we to stick to 2 tones? Just wondering before I pick out my set to work with.

I LOVE the look of monochromatic cards but I NEVER make them because I think there is a secret to them or something...I will really try this challenge and post later! (I always stick to the CC and SC and never venture of those days of challenges, glad I stopped by this one today!)
