Some Monochromatic Inspiration

As  I've mentioned I'm a new member of the team over at Chalk N Stock and today I shared a Monochromatic inspiration card.  I have a few VersaMagic Chalk ink teardrops pads I got when I first started stamping and which have been sadly neglected for a while.   Yesterday I picked up a new Couture Creations stamp set.... They are only $6.99NZ (available HERE)  and I though it would look great done in a monochromatic look

Monochromatic

I pulled out my VersaMagic Turquoise Gem and stamped the flower corner.  I added the sentiment from the set with VersaFine Onyx Black.  Once I'd trimmed the panel I went looking for some card to mat it with.  But nothing I had looked good.  Light bulb moment.... use the ink to colour some white card.  The ink went on like chalk!!!!  sorry about that~ couldn't resist.  Truly it was so easy and went so smoothly.  And it matched perfectly.  So once I added it to a 13cm x 13cm base I decided that it didn't need any other embellishment. 

I am really pleased with the CAS look I achieved, and I hope I've inspired you to look at your chalk inks and give them a play with and join the challenge over at Chalk N Stock

It's a wintery rainy sort of day here so I'm spending some time in the craft room catching up with some DT cards and playing
