Monochromatic Monday!

Hello there!
Chrissie here today for Monochromatic Week! So.... I always have a hard time with Monochromatic.  It's just a big challenge for me.  I've purposely taken on challenges in the past, just to get more practice, but I still kinda freak when I see that "Monochromatic" on a schedule.  Having said that, I went with browns.  That is my comfort color - I love to make cards with different browns and tans (oh, and I wear a lot of browns and my house is decorated with lot of tans... You get the idea!).

I used Swirly Doos for the lines and the sentiment.  And I did a little selective stamping! I only inked up the top line and I stamped it twice, making the space between them smaller than the actual set.  I just wanted a tighter look for this card since I knew I'd have that flower I die cut at the bottom.

I added some Chevron Chase to the banner tails in watermark ink and adhered everything using foam adhesive.

I think that sentiment just really pops off the card! Are you inspired to make a Monochromatic card now?! I hope so!!!!
