This is my card. I've used the Clarity Honesty stencil with various shades of brown.
The seed cases of the Honesty plant have a lovely translucent sheen so I used Centura Pearl Snow White (Hint of Gold) card for my base.
I ran the card and the stencil through my Grand Calibur to emboss it.
Then, leaving the stencil in place, I added the colour. I used a stencil brush and a couple of brown Distress Inks to apply the base colour, then I darkened it at the edges with some Cut-n-Dry foam. Then I just kept stamping the journaling stamps until I was happy with the design. This was done in Sepia Archival Ink.
To finish it off I hand cut a little tag and stamped Honesty onto it.
That's my interpretation of "Monochrome". I look forward to seeing everyone else's.
