Pencil Highlights by Donna

Hi, Donna here!  I contribute to this blog on the second and fourth Friday of each month, and since this is the second Friday in January, here's my card.  The technique I chose to feature is called Pencil Highlights and it was published in the Sept./Oct. 2010 issue of the newsletter.  I used the technique on the background panel and the stamp I used is from Rubber Stampede.   The rose, which I embossed with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Embossing Powder, is from the DoodleFactory Backlit Blooms collection from Starving Artistamps.

Happy Friday!

WOW that's a gorgeous card Donna! Monochromatic themes are hard to pull off, but you've defied all odds with this masterpiece. Great layout and overall composition too. Just wonderful!

Love those muted colors. So soothing! I agree with Kathie. I often have a problem with monochromatic cards but this really nailed it!
