Penny Black Saturday - Monochromatic

With going back to work this week I don't seem to have had much time for crafting and yesterday was a really busy day too. I have managed the PBSC this week though :o)

Monochromatic

This one should be easy, can chose Black & White, or you can go with different shades of one colour


I had to have a go at this one because monochromatic is such a favourite of mine. I adore the simplicity of plain old black and white together (often with a tiny hint of another colour thrown in). I knew immediately what I wanted to make and which stamp I wanted to use. I played with my watercolour paints again and loved working with black through to pale grey. The pink I have used has been mixed in with grey to give a lovely shade of pinky/grey :o) I had great fun!

Image - Penny Black
Papers - Doodlebug
Flower - Prima
Sentiment - Studio g
Border punch - Martha Stewart (double scallop)
