Bellarific Friday: Monochromatic

Hi all,

So, I'm having a blast with all my images from Stamping Bella!  Emily has so many lines that I love - it's really hard to choose.
So for this week's Bellarific Friday challenge, we were supposed to make a monochromatic card - all shades of ONE colour.  Now, since I usually have trouble with these sorts of challenges, I kind of played it safe...I know, I know...coward!  I chose to work with the colour brown.

My card base is Creamy Caramel CS, and I used Basic Black and PTI White for all the mats.  The patterned papers are from SU's Outlaw DSP pack (which is actually a cowboy/western pack, but it had a lot of browns in it, so I just went with it).  The strip across the bottom was punched with an SU scallop punch, and I added some Linen Thread, and a clear button to that strip. 
My sentiment is from Some Odd Girl stamped in black ink.

I stamped the LOOOOVVVVELY Bessie Lulu onto Bella's Bestest Paper, coloured her with Copics, and added some shading with my Prismacolors and OMS.  I punched her out with Classic Oval Nesties, and added some shading inside the stencil with some Linen Distress ink and a sponge dauber.  I matted that with a Basic Black scallop oval Nestie.

Make sure you check out the Bella blog for what all the babes have done, as well as the Sistah-hood!
