Mono chromatic challenge

Hello guys!!Had a day off today and I ve finished a page for the house challenge over on UKS.It was a double challenge and the criteria was to use your house and a monochromatic colour scheme.So last week I ve been taking photos from around my house not being quite sure how I m gonna do it one thing I was sure about tho,the mono scheme was gonna be an easy one as my house is all decorated in neutral tones,wich is really unusual as I m in love with COLOUR!!I only ever wear colour(very,very rarely black)I love using colour in my projects,and bright colours make me HAPPY!!really really HAPPY!!!But when it comes to my home is a diferent story.I ve tried over the years to live with colour but I just can t do it!!I revert back to my trusted soothing neutral tones without fail every time!!Even my scraproom is neutral,is only my work thats brighten the place up.So printed the photos off and set to work,I ve printed my own background paper using a few diferent shades of brown and creams,I ve used the the DILL stamp from Hero Arts and stamped it with white moonglow ink on chocolate brown cardstock,then I took some taupe cardstock and stamped some dotty circles in dif.colours,then inked a chipboard shape and took it from not to bore you further,here it is the finished LO

So if you like it and you re a member on uks please take a minute and vote,the prize is offered by Charmed Cards and Crafts this month,so will see.Oh and I forgot the flutterbys are 3 d but not very obvios from the photo.
Well I ve watched BB tonight after all the hype with the fake eviction...and my God that Charly is something else,how on Earth can anybody be so self absorbed and nasty?All I ve got to say is that I can put money on it that she will not change,not even after Channel 4 made it clear just how wrong she s been behaving.Ok I ll go to bed now if I don t end up spending half the night blog hopingLOL.See ya!!
