Monochromatic

Howdy Crafters - I have to admit - Brown and Black are my favorite colors - Love Kraft cardstock, brown tone inks, crayons, paper, Bakers Twine, Sequins - you name it - I am just drawn to those two colors and if you saw my condo you would shake your head - yup! [Well I do have some other colors in here, but tones of brown cupboards, floors, walls, you get the picture.]
Anywhoo, I have a Monochromatic card today - thanks for dropping in ~ Blessings, Gail

Recipe
I started out with a sheet of white cardstock and began to enter brown tones of colors using Distress Crayon, Watercolors, and Ink - once that sheet was completed and dry I ran 8 of the MFT Blue Print #3 dies through the Cuttlebug - Scallop die, two flower dies with two center dies, bow die and Stitched long rectangle die for the sentiment.
Dark brown cardstock was selected for the mat die and Kraft with wording was selected for the second die cut mat.
The Sentiments are MFT clear stamps - I used the Misti and Gina K Black Ink - I finished this card base off with Brown Striped Bakers Twine, and brown tone sequins - then glued the finished card front using Scotch Quick Dry White glue to a white card base.
