Monochromatic

If my understanding is correct Monochromatic is the use of two colours, for example black or white, so I apologise if I've misunderstood the challenge on Penny Black Saturday because I've used Turquoise and white. Saying that though I found it brilliant for making quick cards except for putting the gems on the PB Fantasy Tree, I kept moving them around. I don't know whose papers I've used and a selectection of gems, pearls and peel offs.

And if you make one why not make a few more so I've used different paper and because I was making them for my Christmas cards I didn't worry about using an extra colour. The papers were some Paper Adventure that I've had for ages, Ok years then.


And look what Joey sent me, I know I have had it before but it still a brilliant feeling when another crafter appreciates your blog.



I have to check around to see who hasn't received this yet.
