Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 22

Great response to last week's "Sentiment Only" challenge...you got your thinking caps on and came up with fabulous creations...I am always amazed at all the talent there is out there....well done everybody.

The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is.......

MONOCHROMATIC
I decided to work totally outside my comfort zone.....use a colour that I often use but not on its own...usually with pale blue or pink....and that's BROWN ....decided to use the stamped images I received earlier in the week from Jozza and do a MAN'S CARD.....gee whizz....I am living dangerously aren't I.
I know what you are thinking...the dog isn't BROWN...well I am claiming artistic licence here...he is actually TAN...which is a sort of BROWN...that's my excuse and I am sticking to it.  I love these Washed Out Collection papers from Pink Petticoat....they have a shabby look to them which doesn't really show up in the piccie...a little bit of distressed edges..inking  and doodling to finish off.
And a great prize this week for one lucky winner.....
from our sponsor Sir Stampalot
Papers: Pink Petticoat...Washed Collection 
                                     Littlest Dots.....Mocha
Image: Penny Black "All Dressed Up"
Eyelets: WeR Memory Keepers
Ribbon: American Crafts
Alphabet:  American Craft Foam Thickers 
                Adorn-It Natural Tiny Etched Alphabet

Can't wait to see what you all create this week...will be popping over to visit you all later
Love Kath xxxxxx
