penny black challenge...

Morning! Today's card was inspired by the challenge that is on the Penny Black Challenge Blog this week the theme was to make your card monochromatic - I love this idea for creating a card it is so simple and makes your stamped images stand out so effectively. The stamp that I have used is the nativity scene and I have yet to make a card using this stamp - each of the images that I have coloured I haven't been happy with, they didn't seem to look good in many different colours and then I found this challenge. I have coloured the image using only my chocolate chip ink pad and an aqua marker. I love the depth of colour that you can create using this method and the may different shades that can also be made just by adding a little water.
I have then inked the edges of the very vanilla panel. I have used a plain white card and inked the edges in chocolate chip and added a piece of chocolate chip Christmas DSP to this with ribbon detail above this with a bow tied to the right hand side.
I have added no sentiment to the front of the card but stamped Christmas Wishes on the inside in the middle, and inked the edges to this also.
I hope you like the card and thanks for looking - Debbi x x x
