SWEET!

It's a monochromatic FARM FRESH FRIDAY! It was very challenging for me to create a project in a single color. Initially, I thought it might be kinda boring. But I found (by looking at other peoples gorgeous work) that it can be very visually appealing and fast when you don't have to color an image or put together colors.


The adorable image is part of a new rubber set by Marina Neira from THE GREETING FARM
called Sweet Tooth which will be available on Monday, February 1st.

I picked up this SEI paper pack a while back from the clearance aisle at Michaels because I loved the earth tones in all the different patterns and it worked great with this challenge. The button was from the clearance bin too and the swirl was cut using my Cricut and the Storybook cart. The image was stamped and sponged with SU Chocolate chip ink which matched pretty well. I was tempted to give them some rosey cheeks but I didn't want to cheat for the challenge, maybe I will do that before I send it off.
Have a great weekend!
