Flying Stars goes Mono!

I know, twice in one day! But I had to give it a try! Penny Black has a 24 hour monochromatic challenge going on and I really wanted to challenge myself by finding a way to use that one and only PB stamp AND go monochromatic!

If you don't like green it's probably better to leave now!  Having said that, please come again, I promise not to make anything too green for some time!

Paper: PTI cardstock
Ink: Shabby Shutters & Peeled Paint DI; Versamark; Pear Tart Memento ink
Stamps: Penny Black; PTI (sentiment)
Other: PTI Edgers Die #2; Clear Embossing powder; Crinkle ribbon; Brad & Flower (stash); PTI Tiny Tags Die

I used the PB stamp and stamp-a-majigged away to create the frame on the white notecard.  The actual stamped panel was made by stamping the image with versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder. I then used the resist technique and distressed the image with the two green distress inks.  I also stamped the white paper flower with the same PB stamp using Pear Tart ink from Memento.

Ok, that's me for today, I just cannot talk about this green anymore!  But don't get me wrong, I actually kind of like what I did.  Oh yes, there is a teeny tiny dragonfly hidding in there, it's from a Hero Arts set, I hope PB do not mind, but a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do when she has limited supplies, be inventive and improvise! Ciao!

Well you know I love green so how could I not love this? Love that dragonfly sort of faded in to the bg and that stamp is really cool. Great job on the monochromatic!
