Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 3 June 2011

Oh me oh my another fortnight has come and gone.  We had some lovely entries for the last Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge so make sure you go and check if you are a winner.
The topic this fortnight is monochrome.  I do love doing monochrome but decided to go away from the popular black-and-white.  Instead, I decided to go with tones of blue and decided to decorate a canvas rather than a card.  I used Tim Holtz's Faded jeans Distress ink pad to colour the white canvas.  The image I have used is a Sweet Pea Ching Chou-Kuik image called Dark Royalty.  Isn't she absolutely gorgeous?  I have coloured the image with promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen.  The edges have been inked along with all the scraps of backing paper/card that I have used.  I know I'm obsessed in inking the edges but I hate to see the white showing.  The mirri card I put through an embossing folder to add some texture.  The canvas is finished off with scrolls/flowers/tag sentiment/butterfly die-cuts, peel-off sentiment, card candy, pearls, pearl heart hat pins and a selection of gorgeous flowers highlighted with some Stickles glitter glue to add some sparkle and shine.

I am entering this canvas into the following challenges:
