Charisma Cardz Challenge 29 - Monochrome!

My sister and I decided we might venture into new pastures and try out a challenge we’ve never done before.  After doing a little hopping around the net we were inspired to give Charisma Cardz a whirl today.  Here is the theme for this week:

Charisma Cardz Challenge #29


Yep that's right! we'd love to see all your wonderful creations this week with something you have with the theme monochrome (same shades of one colour) !

I made this card:




Designer Paper - Peasant Bobbin, Urban Window Collection

Stamps -              Thanks 2 You, Stamps of Life

                             Daisies 2 You, Stamps of life

Goosebumps Shimmer Spray

Fairy Dust Glitter

Bow and Ribbon - a bit of sheer and a piece of salvaged raffia

This card was fun to make.  The florals are actually two separate stamps with both being the stalks and blossoms together but I used circles to “pop” out the tops and then drew focus to them by treating them with Goosebumps Shimmer Spray and sprinkling Fairy Dust Glitter into them, being as these are two items we picked up on the weekend and promised we would play with.
