Hello Monday, my friends! Our newest challenge for you at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is - Monochrome - which means to use shades of one color. It is fun (and challenging) to limit your color palette, and I hope you will enjoy creating a monochrome project to share with us this week.
Hasn't it been wonderful having Terelisa Agosti with us this month? She is so creative and it has been a joy having her as our guest designer. I wish you the very best Terelisa, and look forward to seeing more!
I am thrilled for one of my fellow design team members, Andrea Ockey Parr, who has recently released her amazing stamp sets with Inky Antics!! I love her wonderful images, and she has such a way with words, that just make these stamps a joy to play with. Congratulations Andrea! (Simon Says Stamp carries all of Andrea's sets)
So of course, I had to reach for a set to play with this week! I love to read, as I know Andrea does, and I especially like the saying about villains in the middle part of the story.
I started off in one of my small art journals on a page that looks like sheet music, and stenciled on some fun Irregular Dots.
More dots in another shade of blue...
...and time to add in a new shape with the triangles, and another blue.
Look at all those blues!
Why not add another blue layer, this time with the Twisted stencil?
Maybe I should tone it down a bit with a very pale blue.
Stamping and sprinkling on some dots...
Ooh, wait - Infusions in blue!
Oh yes, I am liking this now!
I stamped my heroine on watercolor paper and colored her in...mostly blues. I decided to break out of the monochrome with just a hint of pink and a bit of yellow.
Watch out for the villains...keep reading to the end of the story! I added a clip to the page and some funky fibers, and I am really liking this!
Are you inspired to create along with us this week in monochrome? I hope so, and am looking forward to your creative makes! Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp give away a $50 voucher to one lucky participant drawn at random.
A great place to shop!!
