Just for Fun Friday

It's Just for Fun Friday at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog and time to participate in Color Challenge #14! This week I am challenging my faithful followers (that would be YOU)  to play along with this fun Monochromatic color challenge.  Choose any one color you please and create a project using shades of that one color.  You can do it!  Enter your project over at the JFF blog when you are done and make yourself eligible to win a sweet prize. How great is that?

Anywho... as for my project just let me say this....I know, I know... "natural" really isn't a color... (maybe you would consider my choice brown, or perhaps cream)...but at any rate, here's my card for the JFF challenge... Ta-Da...


I created a topfold 5 x 5 inch card base from Kraft cardstock and then scored the back of the card every 1/4 inch. I then inked the edges of smaller squares of Softstone, Rustic Cream and Vintage Cream cardstocks with some soft brown ink.  I used my trusty little Cuttlebug to crank some texture into the Vintage Cream with an embossing folder and then tied a bow around that square using some cream binding tape. I stamped the Just for Fun Rubber stamp sentiment onto Softstone cardstock and distressed the edges. Then I adhered everything to the base of the card, popped on a few brownish gems and then misted it all with some Old Lace Glimmer Mist...and it was done!

So there you have it folks a clean and simple card... now I suppose I just need to find a couple that's getting married.

I think this is very brave choice for monochromatic - it's hard to get these colors to look great - Your card turned out lovely!
