Crafty Catz #215 - Monochrome

Good morning all, well I'm sorry I'm running late this morning but have been having a blogger issue and it would seem I have some conflict between blogger and Norton but anyway I'm here now so let me tell you about the new challenge this week over at Crafty Catz, this week the wonderful Naomi chose the theme of Monochrome, this used to fill me with fear now I really like it! lol.  We have a great sponsor too.  

Grab a Banner
prize...... 4 images of winners choice

And the DT got to play with some of the wonderful images from Terri so be sure to check them out.

I used the fabulous image Working the Land.  Now I chose green because a little while ago I was running out ink (I didn't know it at the time) and I went to print this image and it came out green and I thought at the time how effective it looked so when Naomi set us the theme of monochrome I just knew what colour I was going to use!  I started with a green cs base, then a scrap ofvery old green mottled paper from my scraps drawer (I think it's HOTP) then I used more of the green cs to make a mat that I half embossed then added the image, sentiment and some green brads.  Cut some swirls using the green cs and added some green flowers and tiny roses.

  3. Wow, Jac, Green is the perfect colour for this stunning monochromatic card ....though I am having a smile at how you stumbled upon your choice - I think we can all relate to our printer ink doing its own thing but this is the most productive example of the frustrations that are usually expressed. I feel that I'm sitting watching the farmer Plough his land in the beautiful green countryside.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

  4. This is just so beautiful. Love the green tints and the layered flowers.
