DCC - Monochromatic

Its DCC Wednesday at Repeat Impressions and this weeks theme goes perfect with the color scheme I've been veering to lately.  This weeks DCC was chosen by Deonna - Monochromatic.  I've been on such a black, white & red kick lately, so this challenge works out perfect for me - I just stuck to the black color scheme.   Earlier this week, I created a card using the SOTW - this Leaf Motif - 6621-I.

I was just lovin' how this image looked so I decided to take it one step further and use it on my DCC card.  I stamped this image with VersaMark on black paper and then heat set it with clear embossing powder. I just love how that clear embossing powder looks on dark paper.   I used various border punches and strips of black paper to stick with that one color theme.  

Here's a close up - hopefully you can see that embossing a little more clearly.  This card was actually quite difficult to photograph since it is so monochromatic.  

So I have 2 bits of good news for you - 1) this is a challenge, so go ahead and play along with us.   Create your own monochromatic card, link it on the Repeat Impressions blog, and you will be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the RI store.  2) Since this image is the RI SOTW, it is a whopping 50% off.  Grab it this week to catch that discount.  Go here to find out how - scroll down to Monday's post for the full details.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll play along
