DCM - Monochromatic

After the sunshine comes the rainbow!But this is red OR yellow OR pink OR green...This week you can do ANYTHING you like on a card BUT you can only use one colour.I (Lythan) have been very strict with the team and quite frankly enjoy the power when they come begging to be allowed to use just a hint of one other colour. I did in the end allow black for the sentiment particularly if you do an all white card. But the real idea is to have fun with just one colour and see just what variation there is.

Well the brown card below, is my second attempt! My sentiment is stamped in very dark brown, which might as well be black!!!
The first card, I thought was shades of pink, but one of the papers looked far too lilac for me. So I made another card. I have a love of brown & finally got my hands on some brown blooms to go with the papers I picked up weeks ago.

Love these cards Paula, especially the brown one.

Yep, the brown one is my fave too! And I see what you mean about the colours of the other oen - it's funny how something that looks one colour when viewed on it's own, suddenly seems to change to a completely dirrente colour when you put it with something else.
