Monochromatic Challenge

Time for another great challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this month.  The theme of the challenge is monochromatic. 

The trumpet player is an unmounted rubber stamp that was purchased at a garage sale and I am unable to find out who made the stamp.  The other stamps are from Hampton Art Stamps that make up my monochromatic collage.  I also used some washi tape and diamond glaze on the bubbles to give the card some texture. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team. 


  1. This is such a great card. Lovely monochromatic. It reminds me of Nawlins where my husband grew up. His dad had a record shop in the French Quarter and had a lot of jazz musicians stop and play when it was quitting time at the shop.

  2. Fabulous card Judy, loving the jazz collage. Hope the smoke isn't too bad out your way, poor BC. I have relatives in the Caribou and they all had to evacuate at one point for several weeks. Hope you fair better.

  3. Fabulous Judy. Hope everything is OK with you and that you are still safe. Hugs Kimx

  4. Great card Judy. I love the trumpet player, looks like quite a large stamp. Have a great crafty week, Angela xXx
