A Study in Browns

The current Stampotique Designers Challenge is a sketch challenge which was
designed by Lisa Somerville. I love sketch challenges and they can usually be combined with other challenges. The challenge at Critter Sketch is monochrome. With this card I combined the sketch with the shades of brown. My stamp is from Stampotique. I used the out of the nestie (Spellbinders) technique from Technique Junkies for the image circle. The background square panel is also a Spellbinders die cut. The middle panel was cut from a piece of Club Scrap design paper. The leaf ribbon was cut using a punch. The background panel is also Club Scrap. I really love the look of monochrome, but it can be a challenge to stick to shades of only one color.
