Monochrome Lucky Dip

As a complete contrast to yesterday's bright & colourful card, I have something a lot more subdued today, inspired by the blog header over at Less is More. I used a Heros Arts stamp for the background...stamping it in 'Old Paper' Distress Ink, then stamped a swirly flower from a set by My Paper World in black Versafine over the top. I used a mixture of 'Old Paper', 'Pumice Stone' and 'Brushed Corduroy' to colour in the flowers, then blended more 'Old Paper' around the edges. The sentiment stamp is also by Hero Arts.
