Pile It On - The One You Must

Happy Sunday,
It's time for another challenge over at Pile It On and this time we want to see your monochromatic creations or as we are explaining it:

THE ONE YOU MUST (Use only one color and black or white or brown and cream)

I love the monochromatic look even if I don't use it very often.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week, The Stamping Boutique, and the Design Team got to work with the super cute images.

I chose one that I thought lent itself to the vintage look and I found a few challenges (just as Pile It On wants you to do) to go along with it.
I will actually admit I think I went a little over the top with my list today but the thrill of adding more to my list is what makes it more fun!

Crafty Creations had a Monochromatic theme
Stampin For The Weekend also has a Monochromatic theme
PollyCraft want Distressing (and a digi)
Lots to Do want Distressing too
The Pink Elephant want Green
Copic Creations want Green too
Inky Impressions also want Green
Cute Card Thursday also want Green
Twisted Thursday want Green as well
Opus Gluei also want Green
Catch The Bug wanted Green also
Crafty Catz want Green
Prairie Fairy want Green too
Alota Rubber Stamps have a great sketch
Crazy Challenge want you to Show Them Anything (a free week)
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle have a Free Week
Paper Play wanted a Just Because card
Saturday Spotlight had a "Hey Girlfriend" theme
Stamp Something want Something Girly
Simple Doodles want Paper Piecing (and a digi)
Frosted Designs wanted your Favorite Technique and mine is Paper Piecing
Bee Crafty want Embossing (and a digi)
The Cuttlebug Spot wanted to go Vintage (and a CB folder)
Digital Tuesday wanted Scallops
Flourishes also wanted Scallops
No Time To Stamp wanted Punched Borders
Creative Inspirations want Lace, Pins and Pearls
Dare U2 Digi wanted Pearls (and a digi)
A Spoon Full Of Sugar wanted Beads (on the hatpin)
Quixotic wanted you to Leave It Out and use Leaves on your project.

Card Recipe:

Image - Emma in the Candy Store from our sponsor The Stamping Boutique
Papers - Just from my stash :)
Border punch - Apron Lace by Fiskars
Medium - Copic Markers and Chalk Ink
Embossing folder - Swiss Dots
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace - Offray at Joann's
Sentiment - Printed
Die Cut - Spellbinders

Inside is more dp and a message mat.

I paper pieced her dress, hat, shoes and the apples too then I added a little shadow with my Copic'c.
I just love this sweet image. It feels very vintage and gentle and I hope you like it too!

So we'd love to see your Monochromatic projects, enter and you could be our winner!

This card is gorgeous Katie, popped in to my blog pre shower and your fab card spoke to me. Love the image and all the detail.
I made an all green card yesterday so I think it fits the pile it up challenge, the actual challenge is not up yet, so I have to wait!
Hope your all ok, see your still crafting well, I'm still blogging , missed it to much not to. By the way I think your very pretty Daughter has the look of Bella from the twilight movies, has anyone else said that.
take care. janex
