Aqua Shades

Morning All!
Here we are at another Friday, I hope you've had a good week with lots of good stuff happening.

As per usual for a Friday, it's Daring Cardmakers Day  and this time.....
"It's Svenja here and I'm asking you to go 
seriously monochromatic
on your cards this week. 
Stay true to your colour of choice and use no or very little other colours."
I dipped back into my old Funk Hand Download collections for this one. 
 I chose papers from the "Wash It All Away" set and printed them 
out onto white Bazzill card
Swirls; Fancy Flourish (Die'Namics)
Flower:  Blooms 1 (Spellbinders Die D Lites)

For the flower centre I printed a small amount of card using a lighter shade of the same colours on the Funky Hand designs.  I made the sentiment in Paint Shop Pro using much deeper shades of the same colour, the resized it (to fit a 2cm circle punch) and printed onto the coloured card.
The tiny circle on the right was punched from a scrap of darker card and shaped with a ball tool 

When the papers are as pretty as these, you don't really need to do much, do you? 
I hope you'll pop across to the Daring Cardmakers Blog to see what my clever teamies have made this week - and we'd love it if you'd join in too

Thank you for popping by

So elegant! I love those delicate swirls - but even if I had this style of die in my stash I probably wouldn't know how to use it... It's always what you can't do, isn't it?
