August Make ART Challenge

I was banished to the basement to type up some invoices for my husband's business tonight.  My studio and the laundry room are down here also, so I decided to wash some clothes and work on a challenge.

This month's challenge over at Make ART Challenge is Monochromatic.  Anyone can enter the challenge, you just have to use at least one item from Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490.

I happened to be playing with Wendy's alcohol background technique this weekend, so I chose the most monochromatic one I had.

I used some Adirondack Ink and stenciled the bricks.  I added some rust colored washi tape for my trees (Wendy's Trademark Art set) to stand on.

I love this little car (Wendy's Destination Art set), and I rarely get to use it.  I stamped it on manilla cardstock and fussy cut it out.  I sponged some Espresso Archival ink on the edges and tires and added some Glossy Accents on the wheels.  I popped it up with foam tape.

I stamped my sentiment (also from Wendy's Destination Art set) with Espresso Archival ink onto some Stampin' Up! More Mustard cardstock, cut the words apart, and edged them with more Espresso ink.  Popped those up too.  The card base is Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze cardstock.
