STAMPlorations September Challenge

There's a new challenge at STAMPlorations.
MONOCHROME...that's my go-to-when the mojo is low.
Here is my card.

  • I started out by cutting a fourth of a page from COLOR BLOOMS coloring book and colored with Aqua Spectrum Noir without water. (The ink, by itself, mixes nicely with out the H20.) 
  • I then cut and matted the piece onto Black CS with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle then added a Burnt orange polka-dot triangle for more interest.
  • THANKS word die was a quick and easy finish for this MONOCHROME card:))

Be sure to check out what the other STAMPlorations Gals have for your visual delight!
LauraJane --that's me:)

Please keep in mind our simple guidelines:
  • Link up any type of project(s) based on the theme, the sketch, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK (although please don't link up a project you've created for the sole purpose of promoting another company; those projects will be deleted or will not be considered in the running for winner or top pick.)
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • Link directly to your blog post, not to your main blog. (This makes it easy for us to find and comment on your entry.)
  • If you have word verification turned on, our design team may not be able to leave a comment, so please consider turning it off.
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our main blog) to encourage others to play too. Entries not linking back to our challenge will be deleted.
  • Link up by Friday, September 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.
  • Have fun creating your project(s)!

  1. Those sunflowers work really well with the black and burnt orange. :)

  2. From the moment I saw this I couldn't stop ooooohing and aaaahing. It's been a long couple weeks of people thinking I'm crazy. ;)
    Seriously - this is incredible coloring and I love the little detailing you did in the corner of the stitched rectangle die. Definitely tucking that little trick into my bag.

  3. This is so beautiful LauraJane!! I hate to see summer go but I LOVE the outstanding colors of fall!! You did a remarkable job coloring this!


  4. Oh LauraJane your sunflowers are perfectly colored!! This is beautiful!

  5. Stunning work, LauraJane! Wow!
