Monogram

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with City Crafter Challenge blog. Their challenge this time is the good ole' Monogram! Here is my card for today, enjoy!


The background comes from a foil negative of a preprinted background.
I used the Anna Griffen 'Mink' to the background. Her kit comes with pre-printed images ready to be foiled.
I have the positive image for a later project.
Above: When I got married I changed my initials, which in turn, changed my monogram. That was a bummer since I thought my premarital letters were so pretty. My married monogram, well I must say was less appealing. That is until I made this card. I love the mixed fonts of 'S'. It once again looks pretty and I am glad I did this exercise.  Below/Left: Using the negative (or waste) area gives this card the opportunity to see right through it. The shadow effect is so strikingly pretty. Bottom/Right: A close-up shot of my monogram. I used craft foam behind the scripted 'S' to pop up and stand out from the rest of the letters.
