Be True to Your Heart

This is my week for going green...the color that is!! Our challenge at Color My Heart is New England Ivy, Topiary and Sweet Leaf. I do love doing monochromatic, as long as I have a neutral to break it all up. These three Close to my Heart colors are great, going from dark, to medium, to light. Once again I used two retired stamp sets (the new catalog comes out February 1st, I can't wait!), Be True and Spot on Backgrounds. Yes, I'm trying to keep it clean and simple, but I always find myself adding just one more layer! Guess that's just my thing! Now I sure hope you can join us at Color My Heart for our wonderful, and green, color challenge.

I love the patterns that you stamped and the sentiment. The white on the label really makes all the other colors come together nicely! It's a wonderful example of how nice monochromatic colors can look!

Love the text-message on your card--the dotty background panels reminded me of a computer screen (Matrix style)--great complement to the greeting. All the different takes on this challenge are fascinating.

I love all the different stamps you used! The greens just come together so well with your layout. Fabulous job with the hemp too--I have to remember that touch! :)

Linda, I love your card. Tone on tone stamping is probably my favorite technique. Your stamping is wonderful! Thanks so much.
