Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 165 - monochrome

Kim is hosting our challenge today and the theme is Monochrome. We would like to see your creations using MOSTLY one colour (hair and skin tones are allowed). Please make sure though that there is only one other main colour.
You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

My card was made using my fave 6 x 6 card base.  Onto this, I used a piece of background card I made myself, using the "baby wipe inkpad" method with brilliance inks.  I overstamped it with a floral image (most likely dreamees or chloe stamps).  Onto this I mounted a frame - I forget which die this is but it's really versatile when you cut the centre out with a scalloped edge too - I coloured this offcut with distress inks to match my background, and stamped it with the same floral image and a sentiment.  I turned it so it was diagonal to the way it was cut so that the background could still be seen and the final touches were the flowers I stamped out and cut out, and the dragonfly.

A really pretty card - and if you haven't tried the wetwipe inkpad technique, it's pretty fun!
