IndigoBlu Inspiration reminder piece - Monochrome

Hello Everyone,
I'm back today with a reminder post for the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge.
This month we are challenging you to put together a project in a Monochrome fashion. Use just one colour in varying shades.
Now i'm not a pink person and those of you who know me, will know I adore oranges and greens so I am completely out of my comfort zone with Pink, but thats good, it challenges me.
I decided to use the Mulberry Bush English Cottage Artist Acrylic Paint for this card. I really like that it is a translucent paint and you can water it down to get different shades of the colour.

So to begin with I painted the bottom  1/4"of a piece of white card with just neat paint then added more water to my brush and worked what paint I had left in the brush up to the top of the card until I got that ombre look. 
I then added rock salt to the wet paint to get a mottled look. If you look closely the salt has absorbed some of the colour and created little crazed patches.

Next thing was to ink up the Dinkie Flutterby stamp in Black Stazon ink three times onto white card and then paint over each image with different amounts of the paint and water.

How cool is that! One pot of paint so many shades when water is added!
Once dry, the images were cut out and mounted onto black card. The middle image was mounted onto a slightly larger piece of card and attached to the painted background with foam tape to give it more dimension.

I then went around the edge of the ombre card with black it to frame it.
White Bakers Twin was coloured with the Mulberry Bush paint and mounted on a thin strip of black card and placed between the top two images.

This was a fairly quick card to put together. What took time was waiting for the Ombre & salt to dry out but I think it was worth the wait.

I hope you like the card and you have a go at the challenge yourself.
Good Luck
Sue xx
