Monochromatic Woods

Over the years I've spotted some pretty amazing monochromatic cards on SCS and so as I pondered the retiring of our current in-colors....I went back to the first set of in-colors that I loved so much and forget to use.....so I thought using True Thyme in a monochromatic setting would be fun. You know using one color is really a challenge?? It's so very tempting to throw in another color, but I held back...with all my might :)


I used Iridescent Ice on the leaves and the ground to give it a shimmer of morning dew. Also, the background leaves are iced as well.


And to go along with the ice, the Styled Silver HodgePodge was perfect. Brings out the shimmer in a classy way.

Sets: Lovely As A Tree, Small Script
Paper: True Thyme, Confetti White
Accessories: True Thyme Classic Ink, True Thyme Stitched Ribbon, Styled Silver HP, Iridescent Ice EP, 3/8" Corner Rounder, Small Oval Punch, Sponge
