Monochromatic Card

I absolutely love how this card came together. Just amazing and I've got two/three peeps to thank for it. First is Priya, she is one generous person. She sent me so many gorgeous and awesome papers, just one look at those papers and the whole scheme of the card fell into place. Thanks Priya..Waiting to see your blog soon!!!

Second would be the Annabelle Stamps blog, where I found the perfect sketch and awesome inspiration. This card by Kylie knocked my socks off, and so I had to CASE her card.
And also the Cards Blog challenge was to make monochromatic card, so everything just came together. I just had to make it.

Here's the sketch,

And here is my card based on it,

It was hard to photograph this in natural light, with the days being so cloudy..yes the rains are finally here!!

Its an absolute brown scheme with white as my neutral base. One of the challenges on the ABSCO25 was to use bling, but I did not have brown dew drops so used my sharpies to color the white ones brown. Sadly they look black in the pictures. I had some brown ink, which was a tiny minuscule sponge, almost the size of an eraser on your pencil. And I ran out of the brown ink!!   The top most image was the last to be stamped, and the ink was over by then. You can see the difference in shades. Need another brown inkpad, ASAP!!

This gorgeous ribbon was a RAK from Heather. I couldn't use it till now, and now that I've used it up, I don't know where to find some more! Sheer satiny lusciousness.

Stamps are hobby ideas and the sentiment from Stampin Up!. 

Just another shot to show the brown scheme

Till the next card!
