Sir Stampalot DT card - Monochromatic

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and would like to wish you a very happy New Year!
Maybe you got lots of lovely crafting goodies for Christmas and "need" to try them out? Why not join in the challenge at Sir Stampalot where the theme this month is "monochromatic".
If you need any encouragement to join in -  there is a fantastic surprise package as a prize on offer from the shop!!

I've been drawing again - this time I've done a few images which I really needed for my own cards and hope you'll find them useful too. I send a lot of Get Well cards, and needed some images which could be used for both male and female cards. This one is "Bunch of Grapes" and I've already coloured it in green, dark red and purple and am pleased with how it looks.
You'll find it along with the others HERE at A Passion for Stamps.     EDITED.. If you've read my post from last night you'll know that this card was "one I made earlier" and the new images will be available soon...

The die cut is Nellie Snellen, the punches are Tonic Studios border system and Royal Fleur 2 in 1 corner punch.
Don't forget to check out the other DT'll get all the inspiration you need to get you reaching for your stash!

  12. Hi Ruth,
    Thanks for your visit, and Happy New Year! I love your monochomatic card. Various shades of green are a favorite of mine. Your grapes almost look like they are sitting on a dimensional plate and your choice of dp reminds me of a spring picnic. The stitching is a nice addition. Lovely choices.

  13. Ruth, what a wonderfully fresh card. All your greens gel so beautifully.

    Thanks for joining our Green challenge at ABC.
