Lets Get Shabby - Challenge #29

Challenge #29 called for a  monochromatic project, using only shades or variations of one colour with NO black or white in any quantity. 

Take a look at the very talented design team projects here:

Here's my take:

Love you beyond measure

This is a photo of my beautiful daughter Savannah at just 2 days old. 
Like every parent we love her beyond measure.

I chose to use a cream through to brown palette. In reality, this is an all Kraft and tea-dyed page. I have used a lovely Martha Stewart border punch to excess for my background. Layer upon layer of punched kraft border strips which I inked with Tim Holtz distress ink - vintage photo.

I used some Kaisercraft patterned paper from the "Timeless" 6.5 inch paper pad to matt my photo which was printed on kraft in sepia tones.

I dyed my scrap of doily, ribbons and lace in some tea until I was happy with the hue, and settled down with a cuppa for myself. The Websters pages cameo pin has also been inked slightly so that it is no longer white, as has the heart brad. The flat back badge was a lucky find in my 'hmm, gotta have it, don't know what I'll do with it' box of goodies and since I can't get enough butterflies lately I inked some Scrapware butterflies and added them just for fun.

I'm really happy with my first attempt at a Let's Get Shabby challenge, and think I might try this monochromatic challenge again - its a great way to use up the many scraps we scrap-bookers can never seem to part with!
