Shopping Our Stash #233 - Colour Me Monochromatic

Happy first Tuesday of 2016 crafty friends!

Thanks for coming by to check out the new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge today.

This week's challenge is Colour Me Monochromatic,  the SOS crew want to see your one colour project.

You may notice some (most or all) of the design team have focused heavily on pink for this challenge, we have subtitled the challenge {{GAH pink!!}} in honour of Leslie, who was not a great fan of all things pink and would regularly exclaim {{{GAH pink!!}} at the sight of too much pink.

I on the other hand think you can never have too much pink and set out to make an entirely pink card. My card is based on this one I found on Pinterest. Here's what I came up with:

Shite I used to make this card:
  • Pink cardstock (Recollections)
  • Swirly embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
  • Swiss Dots embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
  • French Script embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
  • Paper crimper
  • Scripty Hello die (Lawn Fawn)
  • Beautiful Wings Embosslits (Sizzix / SU)
Visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there please share some crafty lovin' with the rest of the crew. As always, we'd love for you to play along with us!!
