Monochromatic - One Stop Crafts Challenge - DT Card

Another week gone - it has just flown.

The theme at the One Stop  Crafts Challenge  is Monochromatic this week. . 

My card was inspired by something that I had seen made by Lin Brown of LB Crafts, and all the lovely B Line stamps I have - of which there are many, all bought from LB Crafts over the years, and I am ashamed to say that do not get used as much as they should be.

The  card is shades of grey.  The papers are printed from  the Artylicious Decadent Brocade CD, available from Graphicus - one page I printed as is, and the other I printed in Greyscale to get a lighter colour.

There is a minimal amount of colouring on the lady for her jacket and body parts.  The flower underneath her I have layered, and the lady is on foam pads to make her pop out a bit.  The swirl is been embellished with pearls,

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts #24 - Swirls and Pearls
Paper Sundaes #25 - White and one other colour - mine is shades of grey
Pile it on #26 - My favourite things - I started using B Line stamps when I started crafting and whatever else I use I will always come back to them - these are my favourites for many many things ....

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
