We didn’t design our Color Fuse Ink sets specifically to create a monochromatic look but we DID choose the shades for their ability to blend into and perfectly complement one another. If you love making monochromatic looks, check out our Color Fuse Inks and see which ones grab you!

We hope these revisits to these popular projects provides you lots of monochromatic card inspiration and gets you stamping!
