I felt like being mono :P

StampInsanity are having a monochrome challenge this week, and since I was feeling in a monochrome mood, I did three cards :P The post may not be up on the main blog just at the moment, after all the problems Blogger was having, but it will be soon :)

This one uses an image (Lilith, Devil Dolls) and sentiment (from the Les Coquettes set) both by StampInsanity and papers that will be in the Crafty Chaos Designs shop once I think of a name for them.
These are the challenges I used for this one:
Mojo Monday - sketch 190
My Time to Craft - scallops
Simon Says Stamp and Show - anything goes
Crazy Amigos - brown
Designer's Choice Challenge - paper piecing
Take A Word - chocolate. Now originally I was just using the colour, but as it went on I developed a little back story, about a vampire who loved chocolate so much that she wanted to become mortal again just so that she could go back to enjoying it :P
Stamp Something - anything goes
Crazy Challenges - anything goes

This one uses a sentiment from the Birthday Maddie set at StampInsanity, and papers from the Pretty in Pink set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
These are the challenges for this one:
Stamptacular Sunday - sketch #110
Incy Wimcy Designs - girly
Cupcake Crafts - gingham and roses (to be honest, I'm not entirely sure if the flowers on the paper are roses or not, but I thought I'd enter anyway and hope for the best. If they don't count as roses, just ignore this entry)
Craft Your Passion - use checks, plaid or gingham
Claudia & Co - butterflies
Sweet Stamps - butterflies
Sew Many Challenges - anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Spring

And this one uses Angelika from the Devil Dolls set at StampInsanity and papers from the Skullentine set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
The final set of challenges:
The Pixie Cottage - sketch and/or tags
Do It With Digis - sassy and sparkly
Paper Minutes - wings
Whoopsie Daisy - things with wings
Paper Sundaes - magical/mythical creations
Prairie Fairy Fridays - for the girls
Clear It Out Tuesday - ribbon or trim
Divas by Design - anything goes
