New Stampman Challenge-Monochrome

Hello everyone. I hope you are managing to keep dry. What a week for weather we've had.

Over at The Stampman Challenge it's time for another new theme and it's my turn to host this fortnight and I'd like you to think in Monochrome!! Not just Black and White but White and one other colour so that should give you plenty of scope.

Here's what I came up with using the lovely Non Sequitur stamps Jill currently has on the website at half price so they are a real bargain and you gets lots of stamps on each sheet.

I teamed my image with some embossed Nestabilities and a Martha Stewart punched ribbon. The background was stamped too with another little stamp on the same themeplate. I added some perfect pearls to my lovely lady and there you have it.

The rest of the Design Team have created some beautiful projects so I hope you have time to pop over and admire them, they are well worth it.

Jill is offering a £10 voucher for the winner to spend on The Stampman website so come on, let's see all your Monochrome projects.

I'm also going to enter my project into the Try It On Tuesday challenge. They also have a monochrome theme this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Hi Lisa, lovely card - I really like the use of perfect pearls on the stamp - it works really well. I forget to use mine on projects. Miserable weather up here today too - hope it cheers up for the weekend. Elizabeth x


Fabulous card Lisa - love that image, it's right up my street (as they say in Yorkshire)! Love the perfect pearls - absolutely gorgeous work.
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Another really gorgeous card and the detail is stunning! Fabulous card as always, Lisa.

Hope the weather is better at the weekend but judging by the forecast, I think we're in for a rough few days...
Take care and have a great weekend.
Love and hugs, Emma xxx

Hi Lisa
I hope you are well. My new work is taking up all of my time at the moment and I love it, but I am missing my crafting and blogging buddies.
I love this card it is just amazing. Your work is always so delightful (and you are definitely not to feel inadequate!!). You have a real flair for colour and design.
Thanks for staying in touch and take care.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
