Monochromatic Part one

Happy Thursday! Caardvarks is hosting a new challenge sponsored by Core'dinations and I loved the idea of creating some monochromatic cards! Here are two I made last night - more to follow :)


This first one is made using patterned papers from Vinnie Pearce's newest (and beautiful) digikit called "Poised". I love every single paper and element of this kit! Check it out here! For the background I used some Core'dinations cardstock, embossed it and sanded it. The couch and the cat are PTI stamps, the sentiment is Ali Edward's handwriting for Technique Tuesday.



For my second card I used the little plane from the PTI "Tiny Treats: Valentine" set. I wanted to buy the new "Fly Away" set, but surprise surprise it was sold out again :(
But sweet Aimes reminded me of this cute little plane here and I used that instead. Here is a close-up to show its glossiness (made with Glossy Accents):


The clouds and the dots are Hero Arts stamps.

Ok, off to do some cleaning! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Liebe Vanessa,

beide Karten sind megagenial, aber die erste hat mich eben umgehauen, sowas von gigantisch schön, ich kann es kaum in Worte fassen. EIN WAHNSINNSWERK *schwärm*

Herzliche Grüße

You are amazing with any card style. I love these fun and graphic, but also love when you make something a bit shabby and elegant.
