Monochromatic cards

Monochromatic cards are those that use any number of different shades of one colour. In my world, white doesn't count as a colour ;)

These are some of the cards I taught at our monthly 5 Quick Cards class a couple of months back

Meet the silver card:

 A big silvery wedding type embellishment, and a Purple Onion scroll stamp underneath it. I used Dove Gray StazOn ink, and added some sparkle with different sized adhesive bling. Could do with a word on it I guess - congratulations, or many happy returns if you don't think the couple will stay together very long LOL.

 This is the aqua card:

Big mulberry daisies stacked, with a silver centre that has been coloured with Copics. The words come from a Darkroom Door set of stamps called Enjoy Life. The background has been spritzed with some Glimmermist.

Last but not least, the pink card:

The webbing is ribbon from Green Tara, underneath some satin ribbon. The  flowers are from Crafty Koala, and stamp is from Stamp It. It has been stamped onto white cardstock and then mounted onto some scrap chipboard for extra dimension.

Quick, easy, monochromatics. Love 'em! Thanks for dropping in today.
