Paper and Such Anniversary Celebration!

Greetings Paper and Such Fans!  Today over at the Paper and Such Challenge blog we are hosting a fun weekend of challenges and prizes all in celebration of Paper and Such's Anniversary!  Today I'm hosting a Monochromatic Challenge.  I love monochromatic as it allows you to delve into one color family and find all those fun hues and patterns that mix and match so well together. 

If you're a follower of mine you know that I have been totally loving on the new Distress Ink colors...especially Peacock!  So I with that in mind, I paired it with my neutral - black and came up with this creation:
In this project here I sponged a white doily with Peacock ink while resting it on a piece of white cardstock.  I used the negative of the doily as the main focal layer behind my Wild Rose image which was inked with black Colorbox ink, heat set with black embossing powder and then watercolor painted with the same ink and Pearlized Water on watercolor paper.

I added some photo corners, blue staples and some rustic twine to pull it all together.  I thought the bling and fun dizzy doily were the perfect finishing touches.
 To play along with this and all of the other amazing weekend challenges and to win some fabulous Paper and Such stamps come along to the challenge blog and check out all the fun!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
