Monday Mania & Sketch Saturday #84

Hello hello! Summer is here thats for sure! This week is just lovely and hot all week, time for the beach I think! Anyway Im back with Club Anya & friends Monday Mania and I have mixed it with sketch it saturdays sketch. The challenge for Monday mania is one colour wonder! So basically make a card using shades of one colour, and boy was this tricky! I was about to sit down and start working on it when the mail came and in it was all my new stickles from Annas craft cupboard!!! {picture below} and my GORGEOUS new flowers from Bizzy Becs. so after jumping up and down with excitement heheh I started to work on my card using some of my new goodies.

Here is all 19 of my stickles 11 of them being in the distress ink colours that I use to colour my images with!! I think I must get them all now haha. I have used worn lipstick stickles on my image and that gorgeous flower is from bizzy becs as well as the pinkish coloured leaves!! How perfect are they for this challenge. Below is a pic of my stickles.......Bling should be my middle name!
Thanks for looking, I hope you like my one colour wonder card.



I do, I really do!! (like your one color wonder card!!) I really struggle with the one color thing and have no idea what I am going to do, but yours is SO pretty!! :-)Traci

Hi Kristy BLING!
This card is just darling!
What girl doesn't love pink?
It is just a monochromatic dream. I really like your use of layers, the stamped image & the stickles are great.
Beautiful job.
Just one of the many reasons I keep tuning in to your blog.

Too funny about the Bling!!! Or you can just call yourself Miss Bling!! No, that sounds too much like Miss Thing.
I also have a hard time using the same colors, but yours looks so beautiful and I love all the distressing on your cards!!!

Kristy, sure enjoy your blog creations! Your use of the images, watercolor and those distressed edges paired with the yummy lace are so perfect! You do excellent work!
