Monochrome Blues


     Welcome to our monochrome challenge at The Male Room. We would like to see a masculine project in any single colour.
     I chose to raid my stash and dug out an old Lace plate I have had for years, from the days before you could get a die to do it for you. This one was cut with a sharp knife using two tone paper, by the time I was finished I realised why it was at the bottom of a box! No wonder they make a die for this now. I love the effect but the need for a very sharp knife and patience, with the added stress of one small slip and it's ruined means there won't be many more like this, some things are best left behind.
     I do hope you find something to inspire you over on The Male Room blog, maybe you'd like to raid your old stash and add to my blast from the past!

I would like to try this in the following challenges just for fun:
Crafting Musketeers - Monochrome
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
