S&D Challenge 6: Monochromatic Cards and Projects


My card uses the Happy Moose image

Woo hoo, we’re back on line, and to welcome you back to Sunflowers and Dragonflies Creative Designs, the Design Team has a challenge for you.  Can you tell what it is?

monâ‹…oâ‹…chroâ‹…matâ‹…ic (mon-uh-kroh-mat-ik)

1. of or having one color.
2. of, pertaining to, or having tones of one color in addition to the ground hue: monochromatic pottery.
3. Optics. pertaining to light of one color or to radiation of a single wavelength or narrow range of wavelengths.
4. Ophthalmology. of or pertaining to monochromatism.

Cambridge Dictionary definition

MAINLY UK not interesting or exciting

Can you believe that?! The Cambridge Dictionary says “mainly UK, not interesting or exciting.”  Clearly, Cambridge Dictionary has not seen the beautiful work that rubberstampers do with our supplies!

Anyways, on to our challenge details….

Create an ugly monochromatic card or project.

You are welcome to use any product. Of course we’d prefer that you use images by Sunflowers and Dragonflies Creative Designs, but feel free to use other images if you don’t have one of ours.

Please post a direct link to your challenge project  (with a link back to the challenge) from either your blog or an online gallery so we can view it, no later than Saturday afternoon.   If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword S&D6. Please check out the challenge projects below from each of our DT members and click on their blog links to find details about each specific project.


Beth uses our Canada Goose Standing image


Kim uses the Egyptian Door


Jennifer uses our Moose image

We look forward to seeing your cards and projects.
