Monochromatic


I don't know what it is about brown, but it always looks good on a monochromatic card. Seriously, no one lists brown as their favorite color, but put a bunch of shades of brown together and it looks great.

This card was inspired by this week's Etsy Inspired (EIC127) store, Claylicious. As you'd probably guess from the name, it's a pottery shop. I was inspired by this mug, both for the color and the theme.

This card also qualifies for the Stamping for the Weekend Challenge (SFTW #4) to make a monochromatic card.

Main image by Inkakinkadoo, stamped in Chestnut Roan, with Sand Beige and Creamy Caramel sponged on the edges. Sheet music (source unknown) stamped in Creamy Caramel and sentiment (CTMH) in Chestnut Roan.
