HSS #104- The Blues...

Happy Tuesday! With every Tuesday comes a new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge. This week's challenge is BLUE.....



We have some cool monochromatic colors for this weeks challenge:
Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, and any neutral color.  Let's switch it up a little and show us your fun projects using these colors!! 



I LOVE monochromatic cards! I enjoyed making this one a bunch. It's the first time I inked up my Apothecary Art stamp set. B-U-T-FUL!!!  It's a little tricky because the detail is so intricate. I wanted to cut apart some of the flowers, and it was time consuming, but I think it was worth it! I stamped the whole stamp in all the colors mentioned in the challenge and then cut out random flowers from each one and popped them on with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I also embossed the background paper with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. I ran an inked up sponge over the raised edges to give it a little pop. The "thanks" is from Fabulous Phrases.  Ribbon is Night of Navy and the twine is Pool Party.

I hope you decide to give it a try this week! It's an easy challenge that is fun to play with! Make sure you stop back by HSS and let us see your work!
