Sweet Stamps Monochromatic Challenge

 Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to create a Monochromatic project/card. This is an awesome challenge, we want to see what you come up with for this theme. Can't wait to see what you all can come up with, but be sure to use a Sweet Stamps stamp....

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.

Here is my creation:

 I used the "Short Teapot Set S012" and the "Pouring Out Wishes 988" sentiment on my card today. I stamped the Tea Pot first, then the cup and then the pouring hearts.I cut out my colored image using Cheery Lynn Scallop Coved Rectangles.  I cut out a mat for behind it.  After looking at my matted image, I decided that I wanted to have some sort of  lacy mat behind my cut out image, but nothing I had really worked.  So I used the Cherry Lynn Lace Light Deco Border and cut the border apart and layered each piece behind my cut out image to create a double frame around my image. I dug out my Medium Rose Cheery Lynn die and made 4 flowers and put a brad in the center of each.  I finished off with a lace bow, the lace was white and I colored it using my copics to match the color of the card and my colored image.

And here is a second card that I made:
 This card uses the "Graduation Bear & Congrats DUO 227" stamp set.  My image is colored with copics.  I made this card for my daughters graduation in June.  Her school colors are gold and black and on graduation day, the girls wear gold gowns and the boys wear black.  Kerri, my daughter, got accepted to Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA for their vet program.  Congrats Kerri!!!!

 Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

I agree with Dawn L, both of your cards are GREAT! I love the look of the Lace Light Deco border on the Coved Rectangle!
I'm sure Kerri will love the graduation card you've created with her school colors.
