Friday Mashup #6

It's mash-up time again with the new challenge from Friday Mash Up.  This week the challenge is all about Monochromatic Man!

You can do one of three things for this
  1. Make a card using a monochrome colour scheme - different shades of the same colour, or neutrals with one colour.
  2. Make a masculine card
  3. Mash the two together and make a masculine card using a monochromatic colour scheme
As usual I have done the Mash Up.  This is a fancy fold card, we made one of these on the online class on Crafters Anonymous on Monday night and the inspiration struck me to use it for this week's challenge.  I have used the lovely Sail Away stamp.  You can see I have used water colouring in shades of blues for the water, highlighting the waves in different colours. 

This is a side view of the fancy fold card, my up-line, and Design Team member also showed this to me when she last came to visit.  I altered the dimensions of this slightly, just so that it would better fit with the Sail Away stamp.  I hope you don't get sick of this one, as you will see it a bit on my blog over Convention weekend.  If you have a look at my swaps both of them also fit the Monochromatic Man criteria!!!!  What a fluke that was, I hope you can get some inspiration from one of these!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations at The Friday Mashup and the other entries in this week's challenge.  Don't forget to show a little love when you visit blogs, let them know how much you like their designs by leaving them a comment.

Happy Stamping
