Caardvarks Core'dinations Challenge to make a Monochromatic Card, well a few actually, this one the more serious one, some extra playing around below.
Lots of sanding in this one to bring out the core of the cardstock. Core'dinations is best for this, such a soft cover of colour, comes off really smoothly, especially with the super fine sand paper that my Dad found for me in his shed. The Papertrey Impression plates came up really nicely with this cardstock and I will be going back for more of this style in the future.
I coloured the Very Vanilla Cardstock with different strengths of the Antique Linen ink to deepen the colour and make sure this was all mono browns... a subtle approach to a Sympathy Card. Easy to add details to the lovely impressioned background. Well worth the time it takes to hand cut one of the sentiments from StampIt.
