Monochromatic, again

After doing the cards yesterday for the monochromatic challenge, I ended up doing another one last night. I didn't actually plan it to be that way, but that's what happened. I was looking at the "best wishes" stamp from the Cute and Curly stamp set. It actually is supposed to have brackets around it, but I just wasn't too crazy about the brackets...not my style, I suppose. Now I know you can ink just part of the stamp you want to use, but I just looked at this stamp knowing I'd never use the little brackets. Ever. So I cut them off! Nothing funner on a Friday night than dissecting rubber stamps. Enjoy your day! It's finally sunny here after a week of drizzle and cold, but I've got lots of studying to do, so I'll probably still have to stay cooped up a lot of the day.

Stamps: SU Upsy Daisy, SU Cute & Curly

I love this CAS card and the pretty color.

I agree that some stamps have some odd "extras" that I don't necessarily want. I usually just color the parts I want. But there have been a couple of stamps that I have cut apart and mounted seperately. Like when and image has a sentiment underneath. I may not always want the words.

Ooooh, this is pretty! And way to save the "best wishes". I haven't used that stamp before because I didn't card for the brackets either. (Omission--duh) Thanks for the inspiration!
