Denami Monochromatic Blog Hop



Hello friends!
I'm popping in this morning with a card I created for the Denami Design Monochromatic Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Anne's blog, but if you are lost you can start at the beginning at the Denami blog!

I love working in monochromatic colors...they are soo soothing, even in neon yellow! LOL
I chose shades of blue because I also wanted to showcase how Denami stamps are not just cute and whimsical, but can also be elegant.
This card uses the Solid Decorative Crest and a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings set.

Your next stop on the hop is LINDA. Don't forget that you have a chance to win one of TWO $20 gift certificates from Denami just for commenting!
You have until April 11, 2011, 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for the prize).

Happy Hopping, and thanks for stopping by!

This is an excellent answer to the monochromatic challenge. Stamping one image with multiple shades and what looks like ghost stamping. Extra props for changing the layout of the phrase. Such patience. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work.
