Stamp Man - monochrome

Good afternoon everybody
Over at The Stamp Man it's time for a new challenge again; this time it's monochrome: White and ONE other colour........
Here is my card
I started with a white card blank and cut two mats, one in green and one in white. On the white card I used crushed olive distress ink and a harlequin mask to add colour then lightly blended over the whole piece to colour. I stamped the script in green ink too. I stamped and cut out the antique keys stamp and mounted onto another piece of green and cut out. I used 3d pads to mount onto the card and then added some little green gems to finish.
There's a bit of a close up. I'm sending this to the family who have just moved in next door but one to welcome them to the neighbourhood so I hope they like green!
Well, I'd better get back to prepping for Sunday's class so hope you all have a good afternoon and that your creative time is fun.

Oh wow, I love this card, the keys are incredible. I really love all your work. Im quite new to crafting and my blog baby is less than 3 months old so Im just in awe of all the talented crafters. This is the type of crafting Im aspiring to achieve. I do a lot of bookbinding but so far I havent really been very successful at cards, but Im trying. You and your blog give me plenty of inspiration, thank you. Lee xx

Another clever card, Neil. The olive green is just fab - and I really like your stamped background which compliments the key image perfectly. Elizabeth

The key to your New Home! I like it. Very thoughtful and the olive green as your monochrome other colour looks fab. Mrs A.
