Monochrome Waterfall

Well, here is the Monochrome Waterfall Card,
Bank Holiday Challenge, Sarn gave me.

I made this card using only black and white cardstock. I cut the white base card and then stamped it with my favourite leaf stamp from PSX (it doesn't have a name, just F-2781). I then cut the black cardstock as instructed on Splitcoast Stampers website and made the waterfall base. I then stamped four squares of white cardstock using the same 'Sketched Butterfly' from Stampendous! on each of them. I punched a hole and threadded through the thin black ribbon for the pull string. To finish the monochrome effect but not to leave it looking too stark, I added glitter just on the Butterflys body on each of the stamped images before attaching each piece to the sections on the waterfall base. Then I added the whole thing to the previously stamped white cardstock. Et voila! Next challenge please Sarn xxx

WOW - you've really risen to the challenge. It's a lovely card Fae. I'll have to dip into my inspiration jar for another challenge for you later.

Thanks Julie, thanks Sarn. Glad you like the card, I am pretty pleased with it myself. When you said monochrome Sarn, I thought it might be a bit bland just all black and whhite, but then I saw my lovely leaf stamp and I know that looks just just stamped in black on white cardstock so I knew I couldn't go wrong really, especially when I found our lovely sketched butterfly stamp too. What a lovely combination that turned out to be.
