A Monochromatic Note

Hi again - this is my second post for today (scroll down to see my interpretation of this week's CPS sketch challenge). Last Friday, Paige put up a challenge on the CARDS Blog for monochromatic cards. Here's my interpretation ... I hadn't used my seam binding in awhile and I really love this Peacock color ... so I went on a hunt for some papers that went well with it and settled on this paper from October Afternoon. I really heart the Thrift Shop line papers. I especially love that that dot paper is the reverse of the doily paper - what a fun combo!

Anywho ... for the sentiment I used the label from SU!'s Great Friend and then added the sentiment and little flourishes from PTI's Take Note. I did stamp off first on the flourishes to get a lighter shade of the Ocean Tides ink ... sometimes I will do that when I don't have exactly the right color ink for what I really want.

Well that is all for now ... back to working on some projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: SU! Great Friend; PTI Take Note
Ink: PTI Ocean Tides, Chai, Chamomile
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, Vintage Cream; October Afternoon Thrift Shop (Collector's Item, Needs Paint)
Other: Peacock seam binding; foam tape; corner rounder punch
