SSInkspirations Monochromatic Day!!

Head on over to SSInkspiration to check out some awesome monochromatic cards!

Monochromatic.  So....what exactly is that?  

Webster defines it as:
1.  Having or consisting of one color or hue    (YAWN)
2.  consisting of radiation of a single wavelength or of a very small range of wavelengths   (um...HUH?)
3.  of, relating to, or exhibiting monochromatism   (um...circular reasoning anyone?)
4.  lacking variety, creativity, or excitement:  colorless   (the complete opposite of what I love!)

I would define it as........AHHHHHHHHHHHH  What do you do with only one color?!?!
I love color!!  I love bright colors mixed with neutral colors on top of subtle colors...
any color with every other color!  
AHHH  I love COLOR!!
so to me it clearly was going to be a HUGE stretch to make this work.
and then....
SSInkspirations Monochromatic Day!!

I did it!!  I totally did it!
How fun is that?!
Now I will admit.  It took me longer to decide which color that I wanted to focus on than actually making this card.
I LOVE this Crisp Cantaloupe from the 2013-2015 In Colors.  
I used the Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock, Ink, In-color DSP pack,
 and I used my Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker to color the rhinestone and the Very Vintage Designer Series Buttons. 
Wanna hear the best part.....this is a NEW stamp set and framelit !!  
If you have not had a chance to check out the new Occasions Catalog...oh Girl! (or Boy!) are you missing out!!
