I trust you are all well and I guess many of you are already following the Olympics ... it would be hard to escape the TV coverage as it seems to be on any time I've switched on today.
Because my computer broke down earlier this week, I've been busy in the craft space and have completed a few quick and easy projects. First, this is the card I've made for Hazel's CHNC Challenge 82 ... she asks this week that we make a monochrome project.
I opted to use mainly various tones of one colour with white rather than the black/white option, just for a change.
Square white card base
Cosmo Cricket DP, Sweater Weather
Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder
Penny Black Snowy Park stamp
Papermania ink cubes in two shades of green
Smooth white card for stamping and embossing , green mirri card for matting, iridescent glitter and glue pen; narrow dark green satin ribbon; white card candi - all from stash
To do this, I spritzed the water over the ink and then stamped it on to white card. Once this had dried and I'd cleaned the stamp, I stamped over the image again but this time with black ink. Here's the result.
Instead of glitter, this time I've used Crystal Stickles to decorate the image. The beautiful embossed card and the die-cut leaf spray came in a fabulous RAK from my Docrafts friend, Chris Lee - many thanks Chris.
Once again, it does look much better in real life ... hopefully you can see the hint of green through the black in this close-up.
White embossed card, Tied Together

Edited Note: Sandra over at Stamping For Pleasure has told me I can enter these cards for her July Rudolph Day challenge, and as I intended to but forgot, I'm submitting them now :)
