Tuesday again it means new Challenge at Cards und More this time the theme is Monochrome. We have also a lovely Sponsor this time:

I took the Image that Sparkle and Sprinkle gave for us as DT member named Morning Goddes EDIE I only colored with 2 shade of grey and the skin I choose copic marker skin color. I also stamped my background using Hero Arts Background Stamp with Grey Ink. The Sentiment is Altenew and also stamped with Grey Ink.

I stamped the background using a new Hero Arts Floral Wallpaper Background Cling Stamp with grey shadow Ink...I love the result so much..will use it again for another card :)

First I Die Cut a Mask using Stamping Mask Paper from Inkandinkado. I masked first the main area that will still white aand sponged this three Distress Inks colors.

Here is the closed up of the masking paper:

I also using puncher to make a round masking paper and sponged the Sunshine using yellow Distress Ink. After that I spray (too much water) water on the sponged area..Trully I wanna say this is the FIRST TIME I sprayed water on my distress area...and too much water make it so much splotches area :) As I want to stamped the sentiment I did a boo boo area on the green sponged background. Also I tool green paper and stamped the sentiment on it :)

  16. The cat lady image is so fun and I think it looks so stylish colored in grey and skin tones only, also the background adds to the grown up feminine style.
    To use a die cut as stencil is a fab idea, I've never done that. Yet. So perfectly inked outdoors scene, love the concept of this card!!

  17. Wow. Both of these cards are fabulous. Thanks for showing how you made each background. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Jo's Fun Friday. AJ DT JSS
