Monochromatic Sunflower

SU Only Challenges is currently having a monochromatic color scheme challenge. I love monochromatic color schemes, because they are simplistic looking, and easy to make with Stampin' Up! products....everything matches! I knew I wanted to use the Sunflower background stamp, and I thought Daffodil Delight was an obvious color choice.

I cut two pieces of card stock, one Whisper White, and one Daffodil Delight, laid them side by side, and stamped the Sunflower background stamp onto both pieces. To take away the contrast of the Sunflower against the Whisper White card stock, I lightly covered the white areas with a sponge and Daffodil ink.

For the Papillon Potpourri butterfly image, I tried using Daffodil ink. I didn't feel like the image was dark enough, so I tried it again with More Mustard (a darker yellow), stamping it off onto scrap paper first, so the image wouldn't be too dark.
