Monochromatic Flower - FS43

I LOVE Sunday's Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast. I just wish I had time to indulge myself in the challenges every day! Unfortunately, Sunday seems to be the only day I have time to play. If you haven't participated before, I strongly urge you to try it. You can find daily challenges on SCS HERE .

Today's featured stamper is RoseAnn, aka CuttersCallous on SCS. She has left so many sweet and thoughtful comments on my posts, and I was really happy to see that she was the featured stamper today. You can view her fabulous SCS gallery HERE .

The card I chose to case was something a bit different for me, which is what stretches our abilities and imagination. And as Martha would say, "That's a good thing!" I think it helps us grow and learn. You can see her card HERE . I used the same basic layout and color scheme, but changed all the stamps.

The main image is a Paper Inspirations stamp called Watercolor Flower Stem . I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink on white cardstock. Then I overstamped the image with a splatter stamp using Versafine Smokey Gray ink. Please note that I inked the stamp, stamped off on scratch paper, then used the second generation stamping for the spatter dots. I wanted them to be light, and not overpowering.

The background stamp is Baroque Grain from Stamper's Anonymous. I love this stamp, and forget to use it! I stamped on gray cardstock using Versafine Smokey Gray ink.

I think the rest is pretty self explanatory. But if I left out something pertinent, please don't hesitate to email me.

Gotta run....I have much to do before I can call it a day. AND this is my favorite TV night. I need a life, don't I? LOL!

I have more for you tomorrow night, so please be sure to stop by.

Have a happy Monday! :-)

I love the way this image is framed. Its beautiful! That background stamp really adds a touch of elegance to the overall appearance. The soft gray colors and a gorgeous ribbon combine to make this a perfect card! Nice job:)
