"Less is More" Challenge

Week 18 over at the Less is More Challenge and this week the theme is "Monochrome" ..


Using or displaying only shades of one colour or black and white.
You may choose any colour you wish, but please keep all the shades you use within your chosen spectrum.

I don't seem to have a variety of shades of any one colour, so I've gone for just the one ink but used a patterned stamp for interest.


The stamp is a 99p cheapie from g-studio
Versamagic Purple Hydrangea Ink
Coredinations Pansy Purple card
Sentiment Hero Arts

For a bit of added dimension, I coated the middle vertical line with Glossy Accents.

Have a great week everyone.
Suze xx
