Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Monochromatic plus One Color

There's a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! This time around, the theme is Monochromatic plus One Other Color. I have been itching to work with a plate of stamps from Artistic Outpost that is new for me that is called "Apothecary." I chose brown tones for my monochromatic color and for my other color, I chose Wild Honey by using Wild Honey Distress ink.

I LOVE this Wild Honey color and I think it adds such a rich tone to my collage. It was fun searching for a variety of embellishments that fit within the brown tones or Wild Honey color. I chose a feather, a scrap of burlap, buttons and twine and a pen nib. I hope you will hop on over to FSC to see what the other Design Team Members have come up with for this this challenge and of course, we look forward to seeing what each of you have in store for us with your entry. Please remember this is a stamping challenge, no Digis allowed. Thanks for dropping by and best of luck in the quest for the prize! Yvonne

Great use of the stamps and the way you brought them together in this collage.
I don't have that ink colour but agree with you that it brings something wonderful to the collage.
