Less Is More Challenge #18 ~ Monochrome



Hello everyone......the new challenge is up at "Less Is More"...and it's "MONOCHROME" this week
.....I chose my Stampin Up set Greenhouse Garden...
I remember when I ordered this set, I couldn't wait for it to get here...
and this is the first I have used it and I have had it for over a year.......
but its going to get a work out this weekend.....
the ink I used is one of the little Dew Drop inks "Grape Jelly"...
I find myself buying "stuff" just for the name...lol.... 
I inked the image and then stamped off on paper before I applied it to my card,
 then stamped the center with the full color of ink...
I also masked each flower before stamping
the stamp set is a 2 step set and perfect for this challenge......
I decided to make it a "thank you" card as I don't seem to any of those left.....
the background paper of the sentiment is purple, it looks black, but its not.....
well, I am off to buy flowers for my "pots".....
have a nice day, it's gorgeous here "right now"!!

This works really well Diane, the secondary stamping ensures that the colour match is perfect and you masking is also very effective.
Thanks so much.

You've done a great job with this stamp, I'm always tempted to go with several colours when I used it but you've proved it looks fab in just one colour!

This is just beautiful. Sometimes stamps like this really deserve to be the star and not have to compete with layers and brads and bottons and ribbons, this is perfect
