IndigoBlu Monochromatic

The challenge over at IndigoBlu this time is Monochromatic.  Here is my simple offering.


I used the absolutely fabulous IndigoBlu stamp Elizabeth Bennet!  In the past I have always coloured the image in but this time I have stamped it on pale blue card with Versamark ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder Lagoon Lilac Aurora.  The flourishes on the background are stamped with Royal Blue Versacolour again on blue card and I added thin white layers just to lift it a little.  Its a very simple card but the image is so stunning that I decided to leave it alone this time.

If you can, please pop over and see the DT makes and all the other entries - every one of them is fab!

Thank you so much for visiting me.  I really appreciate it!  Your visits and comments mean so much.  Take care.  Christine xx
