I love monochromatic cards. Thanks for the challenge.

Arianne said...

The inspiration by the DT is amazing! Love all the cards!

Lynda said...

A great challenge - I think I prefer brown to black monochromatic - it's much softer. You've all made some wonderful cards too for inspiration.
Thanks!

Love Lynda xxx

craft mad Jenny said...

so off i toddled to my craft room, happy in the knowledge that i was going to do a monochromatic card for the penny black challenge. when I got down there (no pc down there), I thought right, monochromatic, i won't do brown - they all seemed to be doing that so I chose red! I've only just now found out that the brown part was in the challenge too. feel very daft now. will have to go and do a re-make!!!

darcy48 said...

Another great challenge although a bit hard lol only being able to use browns.

Fae said...

Thanks for yet another wonderful opportunity to take part in a great PB challenge. It's always lovely to see what other people do with stamps you may have in your own collection at home and get some inspiration.

Thanks again, Fae xxx
