CASology Week 134 – Monochrome

Hi everyone!

Back with another CASology cue word!

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘monochrome’?

We are giving you the opportunity to apply your interpretation to your creation for this week’s CASology cue.

Week 134 - Monochrome

I interpreted the term ‘monochrome’ to mean a palette of limited colour shades. The purists among us might insist that we limit our palette to shades of a single colour. The choice is all yours! Do play along though, as we have Stamplorations as our sponsor this week. Visit CASology for more details.

Here is my card:

I was thinking ‘sympathy card’ when I made this, and thought the limited colour palette supported the tone of the sentiment. It’s very quick and easy to reproduce. My main image and sentiment were stamped in Versa-mark and heat-embossed in white. Shading to the petals was added using my Wink of Stella pen. The flower centres have been coloured with a black fine line Sharpie. And that’s it!

Please pop by the rest of the DT and check out their creations, as well as our fantastic Guest Designer for the week: Maria!

  1. Gosh that flower stamp is so pretty and love the white against grey. I’ve taken notice lately the amount of people using Stampin Up products..boy oh boy they are popular!!! Do you buy them often or do you have other favourite brands?? Enjoy your weekend. Its Phoebe’s 10th birthday on Monday and she has her BFF staying for the whole weekend, so lots of lollie eating and giggling going on here!!

  2. You’re right – monochrome is perfect for sympathy cards. I love the soft grey and that flower looks gorgeous uncoloured.
