simply Less is More #18 - Monochrome

Do you view your blog stats? Well, I do and it comes as no surprise that my biggest traffic comes from Simply Less is More - that's solid proof of what a wonderful community the LIMettes really are.  So even though you don't leave a comment, you count as one of my visitors. Of course, when you do leave a comment, you leave a smile behind as well and that's just fantastic!

On to this week's LIMette challenge - monochrome.

I seem to have lost my mojo and struggled with this one. This is my 2nd attempt and the other one was complete unsalvageable.  Mandi is so right about how easy it is to coordinate with Stampin Up. Here's mine using all SU products.


inks: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
stamps: Medallion background (love!), Upsy Daisy (sentiment)
punches: modern Label, 1 3/4" and 3/4" circles
other: Pear Pizzazz ribbon, pearls

I really like the effect of the Old Olive on Pear Pizzazz cardstock. This tone-on-tone technique really brings this medallion image to life.

A quick tip I've learned from Michelle Dyson is to seal the ends of ribbon with a lighter; finishes it off nicely and guaranteed not to fray.

Thank you in advance for leaving a comment. :-)
