Tuesday Throwdown- Monochromatic

It's Tuesday! And that can only mean that it's time for another Sherrod Studio Tuesday Throwdown! Our challenge this week was to create a monochromatic card. Well, I'm never quite sure of the true definition of a monochromatic card. Does it mean just use only one color? Does it mean you can use variations of one color? Can I use white for the image? Well, here is MY version of a monochromatic card:


The image used is from the Down Home Blessings stamp set. I stamped it onto GP110 white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored in the boy's overalls using the Light Crockery Blue Copic Marker and punched it out using my Cuttlebug and scalloped oval Nesties. I then sponged Night of Navy ink around the edges. The card base is Night of Navy. The patterned papers are from Close to My Heart's Serendiptity DSP. I used the eyelet punch to punch the bottom edge of the one patterned paper and layered a strip of Night of Navy under it which had also been punched with the eyelet punch. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from Down Home Blessings and punched that out using the large oval punch and layered that onto Night Of Navy which had been punched out using the large oval punch. The ribbon is from the Offray Ribbon Outlet. I hope my monochromatic card is acceptable for the challenge. Hopefully one of these days I'll know the TRUE meaning of monochromatic! :)

Now, go and check out the other Sherrod Studio Design Team members' blogs and see their definition of monochromatic! Here are the links to their blogs:

  1. I think you interpreted the challenge wonderfully!!
    The color is used from light (lightest being white) to dark (darkest being black ) so your card fit well within there!
