A Monochromatic Scene

Hello and welcome!

It's time already for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week it's Lolo's turn to host. Her theme is "Monochromatic" but with an option of Anything Goes so hope to see you all joining us for a chance to win a fabulous prize by Highlight Crafts.

Here is what I made using all stamps from Penny Black and I went with the monochromatic color brown. I did add a orange brown and reddish brown color for a little variation on the tree but I think it still counts as monochromatic...

I decided to use Penny Black stamp Snow Blanket for a scenic card, stamped with Walnut Stain Distress ink with a touch of Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany Distress inks. The silhouette rabbits, birds and branches in the foreground are all from the Penny Black set Nature's Friends.

The sentiment is from Penny Black's set Snippets. I layered it onto a piece of stenciled striped paper. The edges were distressed and inked before adhering to the brown card base.
