Here is my take on it

14 Monochrome

Hello everyone, well it is the first off the Month August. This month I will be doing "MONOCHROME"

Anyway here is what I have come up with 

I made this card using a LOVE HEART corner stamp heat embossed with purple embossing powder. The centre I used a Spellbinders Die and white and purple Ribbon.

I made this card using my watch embossing folder inked it to bring the watches to life, stamped our the pocket watch in the same ink and stuck in on the top of blue and white cord.

This Scrapbook Layout was made using different shades of purple as that was the colour my best friends had for their wedding. 

Thanks Stella xxx

I will be entering these cards into the following challenges Boys Will Be Boys (ended) =  Summer Days (ended) =  Anything Goes (ended) = Using Your Favourite Colour (ended) = Monochromatic (ended) = Embossing wet or dry (ended) = Anything Goes (ended)

One for the boys

Hello everyone, just thought I would share with you a card I have just made, I was my Birthday the other day so I treated myself to some new Spellbinder Dies. One set I got was the Sprightly Sprockets so here is the card I made

I made this using brown card stock, stamped the background paper with  Vintage Photo and Old Paper Distress Inks, using my Chronology Stamp set. I then coloured a Kenny K image with my shades of brown copics.

I think it came together nicely. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges = Boy/male card (ended) = Anything Goes (ended) = Monochrome (ended) = Using Something Old & New (ended) = Make your own embellishments = Anything Goes (ended) = Anything goes (ended) = Anything Goes (ended) = Anything Goes (ended) = Make A Masculine Card (ended)
