Monochrome

Well it is time for another challenge over at Less is More. The challenge this week is Monochrome or Black & White. I chose Purple as my colour and have stamped this image - sorry I don't know what it is as the stamp was donated to me - with Ink It Up [Violet] ink pad. I stamped one image on the card and another slightly off the card. I have added a Lilac butterfly - only because I smudged the ink!!!! LOL!!! I have added 2 Purple gems from my stash to the Butterfly body. The Sentiment was printed from the PC and layered onto a deep purple card both cut with nesties. I added another little lilac gem under the sentiment. I hope I have not put too much on this card. Mandi & Chrissie really get me thinking each week.
Pop over to the Less is More Blog for another great challenge.

However did you get such a crisp image on your textured cardstock? Its great! I personally would have left the medallion sentiment for the inside of the card for a more effective design. Your beautiful stamp and butterfly are gorgeous on their own. "Less Is More."

Anyone who receives this will feel your heart.

I think it would have worked with either the butterfly or the sentiment rather than both, i you don't mind me saying Love the corner placement
Thank very much
