Hello everyone!  It's Meridy here today, and I'm working with the "High Five" Daily Diary Kit and the 12x12 paper add on. This week the design team is participating in a "Color Challenge".  We are going to be going to the "extreme" with our color schemes, and choose either a monochromatic color scheme or a rainbow color scheme.  I decided to use a monochromatic color scheme and some black and white pictures.

I absolutely fell in love with the ombre wooden plank patterned paper in this month's kit.  I knew right away that I wanted to use it on a monochromatic layout.  So this challenge was the answer!  

I started by building up the layers of patterned paper, I even used the packaging from the Pretty Little Studio bingo cards.  It is the cute type-written text paper on the right hand side of the layout, I love when packaging is so cute that it can double as an embellishment!  

Once I built up my layers, I decided to use some stamps to add a little interest to this layout.  I started out by stamping a few images, and fussy cut them out.  Next I stamped a few phrases over and over without re-inking the stamps in between.  This gives a nice variety of hues, using only 1 color of ink!

Finally, I added a few embellishment clusters and stitched around one patterned paper on each side of the layout.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a great week :)
