Dynamic Duos #17 - Monochromatic Color Combo

Purple is my favourite colour and Dynamic Duos Monocromatic Color Challenge features using Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush.  I translated it into Paptertrey's Winter Wisteria and Plum Pudding.  After being on my wish list for a long time I finally purchased Love Lives Here from Papertrey, what a perfect chance to ink it up.  I am also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Card Design Week: Repetition Challenge.  Here is my card for this week:




My kids are back to school tomorrow.  They are back a week earlier than most of Ontario as they are on a modified school year.   Back a week now and then they get a week off in November.  Apparently having a break in both the first term and second term revitalizes them.  I don't really buy into this.  We have a short enough summer here before we spend most of the year in the cold.

Brooklyn is packed and ready to go in the morning, but my son is going to miss the first two days.  He was invited to try out for the Ontario 7's rugby team, they are holding a two day tryout/camp before school starts!!  LOL


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Plum Pudding
Patterned paper: Winter Wisteria Paper Pack
Stamps: Love Lives Here
Ink:  Winter Wisteria, Plum Pudding, True Black
Dies: Heart Borders

Good luck to the kids!!

This card is awesome, Tracey! Another one knocked outta the park. I love the repeat stamping and how the striped paper goes so well with the striped roof.

Wow--this is wonderful. I still haven't inked up my LLH. Love how it looks in monochrome. Good luck to your son in rugby. Hope you enjoy getting your house to yourself all day. I know I'm looking forward to next week...

This is SO sweet, Tracey! I love that striped DP and those cute little houses! I think purple is perfect for a "home" card!! Thanks so much for joining us again at Dynamic Duos! :)

OK Tracey - you have convinced me. I actually have the dies for this stamp set, but not the stamp set. It's been on my wishlist for ages. Now that I see what you have managed to create with purples (not my personal favorite colors) - I have to have this set! What a fantastic card - it's cheerful yet subtle!
