(Week 18) LIM card 1

This week we have to make a  'Monochrome' card
over at 'Less is More'. I always think of black and white
when I see monochrome but it means we have to use just
one colour.Well various shades of one colour is allowed I
think. Despite not being able to find a space to make a card
( not tidied up since last time I made several cards).Anyway
I had an idea and had to seize the moment before it departed!
I used my TH distress inks( dusty concord) again and used
a misting of water to get a puddled effect. I then stamped
onto the same matt again using a toning ink pad( Heliotrope,
versa color) and  a script Love stamp by( My sentiments exactly).
I matted that onto another matt which I randomly stamped with
heliotrope again around the end in a sponged effect.I punched a
little butterfly, sponged that in same ink and added a tiny pearl ( which
was also coloured with a copic pen), good tip that.Quite pleased
with my first effort this week..............you notice I said 1st......there
may be more as I am liking this technique now:O)
ps. Anyone else have a (bandwidth exceeded) message on their blogs after uploading??
not sure what to do now??.......update, the message is gone now, my background went missing
and someone told me it was probably the people who made it needing more PB space. They
probably sorted that now hence all is normal and the message is gone.......just for your info!

This is very striking. I don't tend to use Dusty Concord much but I'm going to have to re-think it after this fab card of yours.

Great job.

I don't know how on earth I managed to miss your first entry this week Viv, it's really stunning. I do love what you've been doing with this technique on your cards this week. The purple on this one is so striking - I LOVE it. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to choose a fav out of your three cards !!! In fact, I'm envious of the people who will receive these masterpieces !!!!
