Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Monochromatic

Thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks 'sentiment only' challenge, this week the theme is 'monochromatic' which basically means using the different tones of one colour. Up for grabs this week is a gorgeous stamp kindly donated by our sponsor Sir Stampalot. Please join in the fun for your chance to win him!!

So here is the card I made for the challenge...


I think it's amazing how you can get so many different shades of one colour so I found the challenge a lot of fun! I chose the colour yellow as it's a bit different! The Duck image was kindly stamped for me by Cathy and all of the yellow was found in my stash! The large flower was coloured with my Mustard coloured Pro Marker to make it match.



Here are a few more views of the card!

Thanks for looking as always and thanks so much for your kind words on the post below!!

Love Becky xx
