LIM Monochrome

This week I've done 2 versions on a theme for my Less is More entry.
For my Monochrome colour I chose green.

The stamp is a 2 part stamp & I stamped the base stamp using Stazon Forest Green - looks greener in real life
I then used the lighter green to do the overstamp.
This can be varied to give a naive effect.

I used the green Stazon ink to stamp the sentiment straight onto the card.

For the second card I again stamped using the green stazon,
but this time used 3 different colours of ink 

each tone getting darker

and again positioned & stamped the sentiment straight onto the card.

Two pretty cards, I think I prefer the one with the gradation of shades.
Thanks so much

Thank you for the kind comments.

Sue - The stamp is a Clear Stamp from We R Memory Keepers called Berry. I bought it when I was in Australia - haven't come across it over here as yet.
