We loved the all brown monochromatic color scheme for this delightful card.  That dog is just so cute!

Inspirational #142: Pumpkin Patch

Here is my project based on our theme this week.

I used the Filled With Blessings stamp set to create this Fall card. The sentiment on the tag was done using Autumn Swirls.


I used some mists on the polka dot squares, leaves, and tag. The dots, fence, and scarecrow with the pumpkin were colored with markers. The brown paper and tag are from the Hemingway collection from Red Rubber Designs

Inspirational #141 Monochromatic stamping


Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #141- Monochromatic stamping

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, October 14 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is all about Monochromatic stamping!  This week we want to see your use of stamps and a monochromatic color scheme.

A stamped image must be the focus of your project and the color scheme must be monochromatic, but the theme of your project can be anything you would like. Please be sure to write in your write-up what you stamped on your project, so that it is clear to us what is stamped.

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here is my project based on our theme this week:

I decided this week to use the Butterfly Swirls Cling Mount Stamp.  I stamped the image twice onto white cardstock.  I then decided the monochromatic color pattern for each one; deciding on purple for one and pink for the other.  I then pulled Copic markers within these two color families and colored just the butterfly image on each using those colors.  I then mounted the colored images onto coordinating cardstock to match each butterfly.



here are both cards together:


I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline!  We look forward to seeing what you create!!
