Monochromatic.....

Morning all, gosh what a horrible morning so windy, guess it'll be a mad dash around the garden later standing all my pots up that have blown over.
I had a play on Sunday using one of my new stamps that I had for Christmas, before Lin closed at LB Crafts she made up goodie boxes for sale, so my staff at work brought me one as did my hubby for Christmas, I just love these as you never know what you are going to get, but Lin must have made up one up especially for me as it had my name on it and when I opened it, it was full of yummy girlie things in pinks, purples and sparkly, am I that predictable......well yes, although I do love lots of other colours as well, and my home is decorated in anything but pink and purple......lol.
So my card today is using one of the stamps from B Line, the papers are from First Edition Dreamcatcher, lurvvvve the muted shades in this pack. I used three different ink pads to ink the stamp masking off parts of it, the text stamp is from Darkroom Door another of my new stamps for Christmas.
