I finished stamping this card and still thought it needed something...it needed some bling! The butterfly images are from a TAC set called Butterfly Bits. I used Violete Palette ink to stamp each butterfly and used Crystal Stickles to add some 'bling'. With this stamp set, you layer images. I wanted the solid image to be a shade lighter, so I inked up my stamp and stamped once on to scratch paper and then a second time on to my white card base. I stamped the next layer without stamping off first - I used the color in it's full strength.

Love both your monochromatic cards and yes, some bling would be nice but if it is for your class (saw the first post was, didn't finish reading this one since I'm at work and wanted to comment) stickles might delay too much, maybe with gel pens. :D
