It's All About Stamping

Let There Be Peace…


The last challenge for September is underway at Our Creative Corner and this week it’s a monochromatic color challenge! Dana has outdone herself this month with wonderful challenges. I’ve enjoyed each of them! Make your way over to the OCC and check it out!   Actually, funny thing happened on the way to this challenge…originally it was going to be a sketch challenge so that’s what I did.  It wasn’t until I was posting my card that I realized it had been changed to a monochromatic color challenge.  Good thing my card is pretty monochromatic!  Here’s my take:

Here’s a close up on the layers:

Here’s what I used:

  6. Girl — DO you know I almost put my comment in the wrong place AGAIN! I started typing and the comment above me said something about burgundy — and I was like—hmmmmmm…. burgundy??? It was BLUE!!! LOL!!! need more caffiene or brain cells.
    I love this, simple, elegant, stunning, clean lines, striking — Love it Wendy! Beautifully done once again!


  7. What a stunning card Wendy! I love the stamp you used.

  9. Wow, just gorgeous. Simple, yet striking. I really love the blue and black together. That ribbon is to die for and I like the way you included the silver cord. How funny that without intending to, you made a monochromatic card that fit the challenge perfectly. I made a mistake on which challenge to follow for a DT a couple of months ago, submitted it and they published it without even telling me I made the wrong card. Glad your outcome was happier than mine – LOL!!


  10. Gorgeous card Wendy! I LOVE the elegant layout and the beautiful use of the gems on the stamped image!

    Hope your having a fun weekend!! Hugs, Jennifer 🙂


  11. Wendy, I just love your card! I love the simple lines of the layout and the image is just beautiful!
