Monochromatic in Green

Are you up for another Serendipity Stamp challenge? We are having some fun working with a monochrome theme this week. So I chose my favorite color - green - and one of my favorite Serendipity Stamps - Rattan Sofa - and went to work. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with Copic markers. I wanted some dimension so I cut out the sofa pillows and then traced them on patterned paper and pieced them onto the sofa. I used the same PP and my Janome sewing machine to create a quilted background.

It really makes me wish I had a porch to put it on!

Head on over to see what monochrome color scheme Anya, Lynda , Jenny and Miriam have chosen.

Stamps: Serendipity Stamps, Hero Arts (sentiment)
