Monochrome Birthday

Good morning and welcome to my second design for Cards 4 Guyz.

This weeks theme  is:-

Monochrome (one colour).

I like to try out different techniques so I thought I would do something completely different.

This is a card made with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressed ink on cream card stock.
The bottom of the image was heavily inked and then blended out with cut n dry foam to create a hazy, misty effect. The foliage was then stamped with the same ink. Some heavily, others having first taken a little of the ink off on some scrap, in an 'L' shape. Can't tell you what the stamp set is as I have long since lost the packet. I stamped a Hobbycraft greeting in the 'white' space and finished off with some brown checked ribbon and a button from the stash. I mounted the topper on some matching sepia paper then onto a cream 6x6 square card. Quite a quick card really.

Thanks so much for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment.
