Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge for June ~~ Monochrome

Happy Little Stampers is taking a hiatus for 6 months so this is my last ATC for them for a while (hoping I get asked back) It's been so much fun creating the little 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch rectangles and 2 inch circle Coins. Monochrome is one of my favourite things and quite I don't plan it but happens anyway. For this challenge I wanted to tackle a few things I don't do very often and need practice  so here are my ATC cards.

Along with tackling stencils I also use two colours I rarely use especially in one tone. 

First I made the background with two distress oxide colours then using the Hero Arts Large Lotus pattern stencil, layered it on two shades of yellow and decided to play with the cone flower die which I cut in yellow then in foam core to elevate it on the card, Finished with a trio of yellow glitter enamel dots from the Eyelet Outlet.

For this pair of ATCs I started  out with the background using two shades of brown distress oxide ink and after it was dry I use the Tim Holtz splatters stencil in the darker colour. The coffee mug is a stamp and die from Verve and I paper pieced some clock paper on it. I also added some coffee beans and the sentiments are from the Verve coffee set. It is also layered on two shades of brown.

Thanks for following along with me on my 6 months as part of the  design team of Happy Little Stampers. ATC challege blog.
