LIM week 20 monogram

This week in Less is More the challenge is - 



monogramDefinition 


monogram ( ) n. A design composed of one or more letters, typically the initials of a name, used as an identifying mark.

So in effect, your monogram should represent the word it's standing for and not be a part of it.

You can use any means you fancy for creating your monogram... die cut letters, stamps, computer printouts, masking techniques... wherever your creativity leads you, we'd love to see it.


This is what I thought of immediately as I have done something similar a few years ago and it was well received, I have no one to send it to, however it can go into my box in work, I wanted a "pretty" R so looked on the web and found this at needlenthread.com.

I have printed straight on to an A4 card after colouring the R and adding hearts instead of dots inside the R then Stickled the flower and 3d glossed the red and leaves, the red has a shiney look and is raised due to the 3d gloss. The font is ChopinScrpt for the sentiment. 


I hope this fits the criteria.
