Flourishes FridayFree for All Blog Hop - Monochromatic

Hello Flourishes friends, it is Linda here and I am excited to be hosting this weeks Friday 'Free for all' Blog Hop.  I have challenged the Snr, Designers to create monochromatic cards.  This is a effect I love and am looking forward to seeing the inspiration from the ladies this week.  But first...

I have stamped the Fuji Mums image by Beverley Cole using a Danube Blue Ink.  My colours were inspired by the birds in the photo - so pretty and reminds me a little of Wedgwood. I have used an Aqua Pen to 'drag' the colour across the image, adding a little more ink in some placed to give added depth.  this is such an easy technique and so effective.

The flower has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto Classic White cardstock that has been cut/embossed the Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die Set.  The Die has been used as a stencil, sponging the inside edges using Light Blue ink and a Sponge Dauber.

This has been popped up on to blue cardstock - I have stamped the cardstock with one of the smaller images using Danube Blue Ink to continue the monochromatic look and have added some white highlights on the flowers to make them 'pop'.  white lace has been layered across the background paper and adhered using liquid glue.

The sentiment has been stamped using Danube Blue and cut/embossed using the tag from the Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die Set.  I have sponged inside the Die before removing it and popped it up using 3d Foam Squares.  A double seam binding bow has been added and a handmade butterfly adhered to the center of the bow.  This has also been sponged using Blue ink and some shimmer added.  I have finished off by adding some small white pearls to the butterfly and the corners of the background layer.

Be sure to visit the  designers' pages today, to see how they have tacked the challenge.
