Stamp Something Challenge 6

Good morning! Well it's Friday, so of course that means another Stamp Something Challenge. This week's challenge is to make something using a monochromatic color scheme and one neutral. I love the monochromatic look, so this challenge was really fun. Our coordinators Denise and Erin have done an awesome job coming up with challenges every week. You both rock! Thanks for all the hard work y'all are doing. The hardest part of this challenge was trying to figure out what colors to go with. I kept going back in forth between greens, blues and pinks, but I finally settled on purple-Pale Plum and Perfect Plum. I haven't picked up these colors in a really long time. I couldn't for the life of me get a picture where the colors showed up right, but you get the idea =). I was in photoshop trying to fix the colors, and I clicked on hue/saturation. It's so cool. You can make the whole card different colors! Here it is in greens. Doesn't that look like Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke? I think I actually like those colors better =).

The flower was stamped 3 times and cut out. I put glue dots underneath to make it pop. I dyed the ribbon Pale Plum using my marker. You just color one side, then touch up any bare spots on the other side (it bleeds through). Heat set it and your all done.

-Stamps-Fabulous Flowers and Boho Backgrounds

Fabulous card, Emily! Your take on the challenge rocks! I love the plum shades, you captured the monochromatic look so beautifully. I'll have to try changing card colors sometime on Photoshop, what fun! Cards changing colors always happens to me when I don't want it to!
