Less Is More - Week 18 - Colour - Monochrome

Hi all, hope you are having a lovely sunny day.  Not quite sure where the sun has gone round my neck of the woods, it seems to be hiding behind lots of cloud, but at least its given me an excuse to have a potter and make some cards.

The card I've made is for the Less is More challenge Week 18 which is Monochromatic i.e black and white or any colour so long as you stick within that shade.  I have to admit I was a little wary at first, I do sometime struggle putting colours together, I can sit and stare at ink pads and papers for so long I get a little confused, but once I got started with this one I really enjoyed.  I've actually made two cards for this challenge, a black and white one and then a coloured one.

For this one I've used Paula Pascual stamps for both the flowers and the sentiment.  I've added a little black rhinestone to each of the flowers and (it's not quite clear) but each of the white flowers is raised up on foam pads (honest!).

Hope you like it.

  1. Hi Jo
    I do like it, but, I wonder if you;d have got a more dramatic effect with less of the circles. Only an observation!
    Thank you as always
