DD #4 Challenge Entry

I decided to try out a new challenge blog called Dynamic Duos.  The challenges are simply 2 colors that they have chosen for you to incorporate into a project.  Sounds easy, right?  Why yes, yes it is!!  :)  But how can one project stand out in a variety of entries?  I guess we'll find out.....  :)

My projects are "duplicate-able" in any class....that's always been my way of doing things.  I'm not big on over blinging a project either.  So, here's my blue on blue monochromatic card:

Here is a close up of the bird that I stamped, cut out then glued it to some Bashful Blue CS and then cut out a "shadow" of sorts.  Or, a border....whichever way you look at it.  :)

Also, you'll notice the big flower burst in the background is two tone....that's because I did the "rock and roll" technique.  It's always my go-to technique for monochromatic.  It gives a nice dimension.

I also embossed the edge embossing folder for a place for the bird to sit.  

I used some new products that will be available on June 1st with the new SU! Idea Book and Catalog.  The banner is from Itty Bitty Banners and the rest of the stamped images are from Besty's Blossoms.

Happy Stamping,
