Lucy- Mini Pianist Me **MONOCHROMATIC**

Our poor designer Lucy broke her hand a few days ago! Lucky for us she sent this gorgeous monochromatic layout before the horrible event happened. On this layout, Lucy only used one color of cardstock to create a self-named "ghost emboss." Be sure to read her how to and learn this really cool technique.

Mini Pianist Me
by Luciane Folch

Bazzill Cardstock
American Crafts Remarks journaling sticker
American Crafts slick pen
Miscellanious buttons and brads
Any Die-Cut machine

You'll need at least 3 sheets of the same color. I used lime green, however you can choose any color you like.
Start by cutting a piece of your background 5 cm long and 5 cm high.
Then get another sheet of cardstock of the same color and cut strips of 5 cm.
I used my Quickuts but any punch or die-cut machine will work.
I used some hearts to make a border.
Then I cut some flowers and circles to embellish.
All in the same shade of paper to create the "ghost emboss" kind of feeling...I just came up with this name...LOL
The title I used Quickutz as well.
Put it all together with some brads and buttons.
Now I dare you all to do the same, just remember do not use any other shade or patterned paper to create this "Ghost"effect.
You'll be surprised with the results!
Have fun!
