STFW Monochromatic challenge

Prepare for monochromatic over at Stampin for the Weekend.

is sponsoring with a $25 shopping voucher!

I found a really cheap small plastic box at the local hardware store.I guess it's meant to store nails and screws and such but now it holds more important items ;).

The WoJ image is coloured with antique linen and vintage photo, papers are DCWV the Luxury Stack and the sentiment is computer generated.

Other challenges:

WoJ - coffee and cream
Papertake Weekly - buttons, bows, brads or bling.
Creative Inspiration - lace, pins and pearls


  1. This is stunning. Just love how you have created this.

  4. Hei Helene
    Dette er nydelig eske. Jeg falt for fargekombinasjonen din, den er flott. Herlig med den punchet borden rundt. Stemplet er jo så søtt og passer perfekt til.
    Ha en flott weekend.

  7. Hi Helene,

    I love monochromatic, so I popped over as soon as I saw this and what a timely post! I love what you did with your plastic box! I just posted a plastic box on Create With Joy that I am storing lace in (with several more to come holding other scrappy things) - I had not thought about altering them - but now that I see yours, I am feeling inspired! Hmmm, I don't know how to do that link-back thing yet, but perhaps if you don't mind I will mention/link your project in my next post? It sure makes the boxes a whole lot prettier!

    Ramona :-)
