Monochrome at Fashionable Stamping

Wow! We had some fabulous cards for men, over the last two weeks at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, it's never easy choosing an overall winner and top 3 but this will be a very difficult choice to make for each of the Design Team. For the next two weeks we are asking you to make a project using Monochromatic plus one other colour.  Check out the instructions over on the blog to be sure of being in with a chance of winning.  Our sponsor, Cottage Crafts offers each winner a choice from her shop to the value of E7.
There is a lot of Love floating around during the early part of February, so here is my Monochrome card in red with a little black for contrast. The three hearts are from a free stamp with a Craft Stamper magazine.  I used  Fired Brick TH Distress ink all over the card including the background, which was then stamped with a small text stamp from Paperartsy. The negative Love stamp is a foam stamp from Papermania. I look forward to once again visiting you over the next two weeks. Have fun, there are some amazing samples on the blog by the marvellous Design team, please do take a look.
I am entering this card into a few challenge blogs with a theme connected to Valentine's Day.
