Ways to use it!!

Well, I decided NOT to be outdone by these WAY!.. will remember the chocolate strawberry fiasco.....(although some were very kind about THAT one....and I thank you-LOL!!)

Thursday's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is "Ways to Use It" and today it was try to find ways to use monochromatic colors hosted by Julia Stainton. If you want to find all the samples they are listed under WT144.

I found this particular challenge not too bad because I LOVE PINK!! so I have 10,000 colors of pink in my stash of "stuff" (honestly - 10,000!)

The REAL challenge was to find some pinks (in ALL those pinks) to go together!!

Well, it just so happened that yesterday I was in London (Ontario) Christmas shopping -oh yes, I waded through the shoppers, drove around the masses, and racked up a VISA bill (again)!! LOL!! The perils of Christmas shopping!!

I digress.......I needed some soothing after that crazy I stopped off in Lambeth at "Memories on Main Street" and bought some Versacolor Old Rose ink, so I was able to use that and not have to dig too much!! yippee-doo!

I stamped the ice cream from Lizzie Anne designs "Little Bits" stamp set on Papertrey Ink white cardstock. My new Versacolor Old Rose ink came in handy and I only stamped the ice cream.

The cone was done in DewDrop Brilliance - crimson copper. I colored them with my copics and mounted it on a pinky salmon piece of cardstock I had in my cardstock drawer.

My background paper is from DCWV Wedding Prints Paper Stack. I divided it with American Crafts elements ribbon and tied a bow.

The image was popped on with dimensionals, and I stamped Hanna stamps "But I need it" in Versacolor Old Rose on the bottom of the card......and done.

Quite monochromatic if I do say so...okay for heaven's sake -the BIGGEST challenge is spelling monochromatic over and OVER!! GEEZ!

After using pinks and salmons....I am on to make some balsamic salmon for supper!



  1. Oh My Gosh, this is so cute, I can just see a card done in browns with chocolate kisses flating around and this sentiment, LOL. As a Non-recovering chocolate addict, it would be so fun to make and frame, LOL. Great job on the pink card, the colors are so pretty and subtle.

  2. This is very cute! The image combined with the saying just makes me smile! LOL
