Inspiration from a friend!



Hello! 
I have been having problems with blogger and don't think that this posted with the pictures - makes it a little difficult for you to get the feel of my card without being able to see the pictures! So I am having another go!

I made this monochrome card for one of the challenges over on Craftymess. It is one of my favourite challenges monochrome and I live the effect that this creates... I chose to use cherry cobbler the deep red is so striking...

I have black embossed the 'love is' stamp from indigo blu a company I have only recently found... I love most of their designs and I love how detailed their stamps are... As a crafter I find this very important and I think that you will agree that this stamp is beautiful - and so effective when embossed... I can vouch that the detail is not lost when stamped either!
I have used black and red mats at jaunty angles on the base of my card and kept these plain...


I have added pearls and co-ordinating flowers to add texture... The inspiration for this card came from a very talented crafter who needs to update her blog! Then I can link to her - the last time that she blogged was 2010 and ever since then the posts has just been collecting dust... I have a feeling though that this may be about to change! Watch this space!

I hope you like my card and thank you taking the time to visit your comments as always are appreciated!
happy crafting

  14. Really gorgeous card that would be well received by anyone. Monochromatic cards are a favorite of mine as well and I love the splash of another colour as it makes the card very striking!
