Monochrome

I've been really pushed for time lately and I didn't think I would be able to do a card for the Less is More  Monochrome challenge but everything worked out without any mishaps.
I stamped the Penny Black image on white card and then onto a sheet of Kaiser Magic Happens a few times.
I used the French script from Stampin Up with Lavender Brilliance inkpad on top of the white card PB image.
Then I paper pieced the flower with the pattern paper, the sentiment is Hero Arts again using the lavender inkpad and some lavender pearls to finish.

I had an idea to splatter ink on my card from a Tim Holtz tutorial, this card was the test one especially has I hadn't used enough pressure for the stamp on the linen card. Then using a paint brush and I flicked colour across the card, I quite like it but I over did it on the next one and it ended in the bin. I had planned to use for Less is More Challenge last week but I thought I might get into trouble of using the rest of the card with splatters.
