Monochromatic

Good morning bloggers hope everyone is ok and getting over all the bugs that are flying around.  I'd like to say a big hello and welcome to my new followers and thank you so much for following!

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme is monochromatic.

 Here is what I have come up with:


I have used Vintage Boots for my image and it is available at Fairy Dust Crafts here. I have coloured them with my Copics.  I was looking through my stash for some DP to go with the image and after a lot of rooting I discovered this - how perfect - but I don't know what the make is I have had it years and years.  The image is cut out and matted with Spellbinders and I have used a Spellbinders die for the flower and corner motifs.  I have used Tim Holtz Kraft Core for the brown cardstock which I have embossed and sanded so the Kraft Core shows through.  I have also distressed the edges of the image with Tim Holtz DI.

If you pop over to Lexi's Creations and check out what my talented team mates have done and join in the fun our sponsor this week is:


There are many special offers on at The Stamping Bazaar so why not pop over and have a look?

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Crazy Challenge - Use a Die/Punch
The Pink Elephant - Print it
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi or Don't
Totally Gorjuss - Use Lace
Sweet Stampin' - 3 in a Row (Lace, Brads and Flower)
The Stamp Man - Texture
Dutch Dare Challenge - Distressing
Crafts and Me - Distressed

Thanks for looking today, enjoy your week and take care xx
