Hello and Welcome back to our Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop, joining myself Sandra here in Norfolk, UK and other fellow Demonstrator colleagues around the globe.

This month our theme is to create a ‘Monochrome’ project. So what is Monochrome ? The definition is “a photograph or picture developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one colour”.

Monochrome with Good Morning Magnolia Suite

For todays ‘Blog Hop’ I have used the upcoming ‘new’ Good Morning Magnolia stamp set #149298. These are beautiful new stamps that come with many other products collectively called the Magnolia Lane Suite and will be found on pages 36-39 of the new catalogue.

My preferred ‘monochrome’ is still the traditional black & white, so here I started with a base colour and a mat layer in each of these.

I embossed the mat layers using Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143704. (I’ve noticed although this is carrying over into the new catalogue, it will appear under a different code Layered Leaves 3D #152321)

Morning sunshine helps showcase this close-up

These photos were taken in the beautiful bright morning sunshine, so hope they pick up the detail for you.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and that you enjoy the rest of your ‘hop’ around the globe.
