Less is More- Monochrome

Hi folks, I decided to enter this week's Less is More challenge again, as the theme is 'Monochrome', and this really appeals to me. I went for my favourite colour palette, purple, and stuck to a theme of clover. I chose to use Kraft card as my base this week, and stamped a lovely stamp from Art Journey three times, once in Versafine Imperial Purple, and twice in Memento Sweet Plum, onto my card. I then stamped a honeycomb design from Jo Capper-Sandon in Lulu Lavender. I stamped the word 'Dream' from Kaisercraft (Life Sentiments) in Imperial Purple again, in the bottom corner. Finally, I stamped two bees, from Jo Capper-Sandon onto Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art in Purple Stazon, and moulded them slightly, before sticking them onto the card.

Pop over to the Less is More blog to see what everyone else has been up to. You will find some stunning projects.

Thanks for stopping by today, Judith xx
