"Hello I'm Jane from Jane's Journal. I was delighted to find out just before Christmas that my card made the Top 3 and that I was being invited to make a GD card for the next "Monochrome" challenge. I first found Country View Crafts and the challenge blog last year when I managed to buy the elusive Sizzix accordion die from them. It seemed most appropriate for me to make an accordion card for my GD spot today.
I have made black/greys and sepia/browns monochrome cards in the past but I thought I would make something very different and a first for me....in blue. I used Distress inks to make the backing papers and stamped onto them with various floral stamps. I also made some butterflies using the same papers. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and is one of my oldest favourite stamps called Dandelion Clock. I decided to keep to the monochrome theme even down to colouring her hair blue..the first time I have ever created blue hair!
The quote stamp is also from Lili of the Valley.
I have written a tutorial over at my blog to show how I brought my card to life. Do pop over to visit me there and say hello. Thanks so much Country View Crafts for having me today."
