This week at Dream Valley our challenge is for you to use Monochrome tones on your creation. This fortnight's winner will receive a £10 voucher from the fabby One Stop Card Crafts.
I went with shades of brown and was inspired by my friend Cath who is a real artist.
I got our a new stamp set to play with - The Girls from the Tim Holtz Collection at Stampers Anonymous. Isn't she gorgeous. I stamped her in Timber Brown StazOn onto cream card then matted and layered her onto two different tones of brown card. The background is made using the Polished Stone technique with Alcohol Inks in Butterscotch, Mushroom and Copper. I stamped the word 'Giggle' directly onto the background in Saddle Brown StazOn and the little words at the bottom and 'Be Happy' at the top (from PaperArtsy Stage Lights 4) in Timber Brown. Then I added a hand cut heart from a dictionary page which I had edged with felt pens.
