Stamp Something with one color...

Yesterday I did a challenge card with just white. Today for the Stamp Something Challenge, I had to create a card that was white and one other color. The name of the challenge... something monochromatic.

So for my color I chose purple, specifically amethyst and eggplant from SU and for my neutral I stuck with whisper white. I ran the amethyst layer through my CB with my rectangle nestability to get the scalloped edge.(Wouldn't it be great if nestabilities were in the next SU idea book on Aug. 11, a girl can dream...)

I didn't really have a choice on the neutral once I decided to use this adorable hippo from Gina K because I received this image from a blogging friend, so all I had to do was color her in with my watercolor crayons.

I placed the balloons(colored with markers) on dimensionals and added silver cord(SU) for the strings. I gave the balloons and the hippo's feet a liitle something extra by adding some sparkle.

Finally I added a little doodle with my black marker and a few dew drops.

Now it's your turn pick a color and have fun!!! Be sure to link your creation to Stamp something so you can be entered to win some fab blog candy!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
