MCT Monochromatic Color Challenge ~ You Crack Me Up!



Happy Thursday, hope you're having a fabbie week!  Oh, and if you live in the Midwest to the east coast, I hope you're staying warm!  If you are sick of this crazy winter...not that we've really had one in California, take some time and enter the challenge over at My Creative Time!My Creative Time
The challenge is a Monochromatic Color Challenge : Make a project of your choice using different shades of just one color.  (You can use a different color as your base or background - white, black, kraft; just make sure your focal point displays your monochromatic color choice).


Cutting two banners behind the label die created the look of one long banner.


I stamp the background with the pattern egg stamp and kraft ink.  


If you've followed me for any length of time then you know that I never feel my projects are complete without a bit of bling, hence the glittered egg shells :)  Obviously I can't always add it, but I still want to! lol!  After adding embossing to the stitched circle die, I added the shells and put an action wobble behind the stitched circle die.  It's hard to see the movement in this picture.  I think I forgot to slow the speed down on my camera.  oops :)

Liz your card is so beautiful and amazing. When I read your recipe I was blown away thanks for so many awesome ideas tip and tricks. How clever putting the egg shells on an Action Wobble I love it. Love the sentiment gosh this one's good for anyone anytime and the idea is great for a LO minus the Action Wobble (LOL) you really come up with such fantastic ideas.
