Brenda's second monochromatic project

I have made this tag for my second DT piece and kept to the monochromatic theme for this month.
For the purposes of this challenge 'monochromatic' means hues of one colour but as black and white are at the opposing ends of the spectrum you can use them too. We will also allow a skin-tone colour for anyone using images where flesh needs to be coloured. (I have found in my browser that my black archival looks blue on some of the photos, but that must be the light conditions when I used the camera as well as monitor colours - hope that makes sense).

I had great fun using some Tim Holtz distress inks and stamps for the background.....


... and I borrowed this fabulous vintage stamp from my sister, I think it was made by B Line but of course you could use any stamps you like. (More details on my blog)

More fabulous inspiration in a few days and I think it is from Trace.

Have a great week.
