inspire me thursday on sunday


monochromatic 1 a :having or consisting of one color or hue.

this weeks challenge...monochrome art. i chose a piece of
12 x 12 scrapbook paper,dry brushed with quinacridone red,
over stamped with my own mixture of ink colors..cranberry & merlot
colorbox reinkers,then dry brushed again with a touch of a pale pink
acrylic i had in my paint stash...i think it was a folkart color,nothing
fancy. i used two rubber sheets from marie otero's fabulous collection
found at lost aussie designs and a smattering of random swirl and circle
stamps...pretty simple technique,but i am happy with the texture that
developed using it! i am going to cover a paper mache picture frame with
this....one of these days.

I love the gradations of color and the pattern the stampings make. You know, this looks edible - like raspberry sherbert. Yummy!
