Crazy 4 Challenges....Monochromatic

Happy Saturday Peeps! 

Time for a new challenge over at Crazy 4 Chalelnges.

It is a new month so we have a new challenge hostess for the month.

Karen Aicken  is the Hostess this month
 ,and her guest designer is the uber talented Kelly Booth. 
  You can find here blog here:  Livin The Life I Color.

Here is the challenge this week
: "MONOCHROMATIC Use two or more shades of the same color. Neutrals such as kraft, grey, black or white can be added in small amounts."

I had colored up a couple of this flowers in different colors and decided I would use one on this challenge card (you will see the other one I colored tomorrow).
I colored this one using Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum using my aqua painter. The leaves are colored with Old Olive. I used some crumb Cake to shade around the flower.

The base of the card is Perfect Plum and then a layer of Wisteria  and then another layer of Plum that I embossed with the Elegant Dots EF.

The DSP I used is from a retired pack. 
I matted the image with Perfect Plum card stock.
I added the image onto the base at an angle with some dimensionals,
The sentiment come from the  Cottage Greetings stamp set.
I added a button and twine to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
