 Diane has the first challenge of the day --
Create something using a monochromatic color scheme.

For this sweet little pig card, I stamped my image in red ink on mixed media paper, die cut it using a circle die, and then (while the paper was still in the die) I inked over it with pink ink. To give my pig a bit more pizazz, I added some red glitter to his bow tie and the hearts around his head.

Supplies and Tools:
  • Lots of Love (Sweet n Sassy Stamps)
  • Canson Mixed Media Paper 
  • Red Foil Paper
  • Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
  • Large Scallop Circle Nestabitlites (Spellbinders)
  • Lace Embossing Folder (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
  • Embroidery Deep Edge Punch (Martha Stewart)
  • Red glitter
  • Red thread
  • These colors of Distress Oxide (Ranger)
    • Candied Apple
    • Worn Lipstick
