Picnic Time - SDDC5

Yes, I have noticed that this card is really green! LOL! But this month's Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge was to make a monochromatic card. Now since I don't completely understand all the rules about that, I tried to make REALLY sure I didn't goof up. If you recall, I screwed up the sketch challenge last month, and I DID NOT want the challenge police harassing me. Yes, we have those. Isn't there one in EVERY group? LOL!

The image I used for this card is Sarah Kay Picnic Time from Stampavie. I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow (water based) markers using a damp paint brush to blend.

The designer paper is from the Spirograph paper collection by Kaiser Craft. Actually, it's the reverse side of one of the papers shown in my store.

I used May Arts olive green ric rac along the bottom of the card.

The cardstock is all from Prism Papers. I used Prismatics Kiwi medium and dark.

I found the green chipboard in the $1 bin at Michael's. The button is from my stash.

Please be sure to check out the rest of the Dream Team blogs for their challenge cards! You know how awesome their work is!
Charmaine, Mothermark , Denise, Kimberly , Laurie and Tosha

All you have to do is make a monochromatic card and link it in the comment section of THIS blog post to be entered in the drawing. If you upload to SCS, please enter the key words: SDDC5. I will use the random thingy next Thursday night (March 5) and announce the winner in my regular blog post.

So...get busy making those monochromatic cards...okay? :-)
