Not So Perfect World

This picture does not do this card any justice! The card features a lightly ink stamped with flowers, polka dots, and the sentiment. My motivation was to make it monochromatic, using Papertrey Ink's "perfect match" cardstock, ribbon, and ink of aqua mist. Well, I think it looks washed out. In person, it looks a little better.

I used Beate's Inspiration Challenge to think of trying this technique. So, in the end I think I learned something. Don't do that again, UNLESS it is to create a background design. In person, I have received good feedback, I think because of its simplicity. But, this is way too simple for me. I like COLOR! So, this is just to show you an example of my 'not so perfect world' in paper art! I'm going to post another card just to show you how hard I worked on a couple of other projects!
