Our Creative Corner Monochromatic Challenge

Happy Saturday! Today over at the OCC we will be making monochromatic cards!

You can incorporate as many colors of one shade into your card as you would like. You can also use neutrals (white, cream, kraft or black).

I decided to use SU ink, Really Rust and create my own background paper using several different stamps from PTI. I stamped "off" on some of the images to create a lighter shade of the color. I added a row of rhinestones around the sentiment to set it off! This was a fun challenge!

Besure to jump on over to the OCC and play along with us this week!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Great monochromatic card, Cindy. I love the bow with the button!

  2. OOOOHHHHHHH -- this is awesome Cindy! Love the creative DP you made!!! It is so neat to start from scratch and make your own custom paper!! This is an awesome creation!

  3. I adore this color and what you did with this! How beautiful!

  4. wow this is just fabulous, love the shade and the self made patterned paper is amazing. Oooh can't stop looking at it!


  5. Beautiful card, Cindy. I like how you used numerous shades of browns in your monochromatic card. I tried to do that, but didn't really achieve it on mine. I am so impressed with how you create your own background paper. I'm a little lazy and use DSP - LOL!! But you are inspiring me to try my hand at creating my own occasionally. TFS your beautiful work!

  6. Hi Cindy :) You rocked this challenge! Your layout is beautiful, I LOVE the different shades of rust and you always add the perfect amount of embellishments on your card - AMAZING bow!

    Enjoy your weekend, Jennifer :)
