Cardinal and Mistletoe - KSCC #29 - Monochromatic

Julie's challenge to you and the Kitchen Sink Crew for this month is to create a monochromatic card. I have selected to go with a red Christmas card (because you know I still need more!!). I hope you like it!

Stamps: Multi Step Winter Cardinals, 3 Step Mistletoe & Holly, 
and Simple Sentiments by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Papers: Snow Storm by Mark's Finest Papers and 
Merry Christmas Words by the Paper Studio
Inks and Layers: Cardinal - 3 Memento Lady Bug, 2 Memento Lady Bug, 1 Memento Lady Bug stamped off once, 4 SU Real Red, Mistletoe - 2 Memento Lady Bug, 1 Memento Lady Bug stamped off once, 3 SU Real Red, 
Sentiment Memento Lady Bug
Embellishment: Ribbon


So grab your favorite Kitchen Sink Stamps and pick a color! I can't wait to see what monochromatic beauties you create for us. You have until Friday, November 19 to upload your entry to the Kitchen Sink Weblog. Three lucky winners will receive KSS gift certificates! One of them could be you!

I wonder what colors the rest of the crew have chosen? I'm heading over to find out!

  2. I love the red! Was just thinking that I need to change up the way I stamp and do a bit less coloring this holiday season (and actually stampin' rubbah)!

  3. This is beautiful! I love cardinals they are just so bright and love their song. The DP is perfect, I will have to find something like that to use, I tend not to use DP because I can't find print small enough. Lovely card.
