Monochromatic Flower

Hello Everyone,

the week's almost done, I am looking forward to the week-end a lot. The weather is wonderful here in Germany right now, and I love to see the sun.

Today I want to share a card I created for the Muse challenge.

I stamped and black embossed the flower on watercolour paper and coloured in in tones of blue with my Inktense pencils. The image is so intricate, that shading is rather difficult, but I tried to get in at least a little shading. 

When it had dried, I wet the background and coloured that too, in a lighter shade. Then I cut it to a panel with my new stitched rectangle dies and adhered it to a blue card base.

For the sentiment I chose a Paper Smooched die and used the same blue card stock. Then I added some bling. 

 I didn't create an envelope  yet, because the watercolour paper is off-white and I've run out of off-white envelopes.

Have a sunny week-end
