Monochromatic Cards.



Stampers are alwa Julie Warner - justwritedesigns ys mesmerized by colors,  huh? What a lovely way to use your scraps or possibly colors you’d never consider experimenting with! So, we challenge you to give it a try and share your results! Plus, one more thing, the Rustic Artsy Swirls sheet is on SALE!

Here’s a link to a Monochromatic Color Chart:


For my card, I stamped the background on turquoise paper with lime ink. I used the tiny specks and teal ink on teal, olive and grass green card stock, then stamped the different sizes of flowers and cut them out. The sentiment and butterflies were stamped on grass green c/s that was spritzed with bleach. A little color was added to the large butterfly with a marker.

On the green frame, I used an embossing border to create my frame and sponged it w/ calypso blue ink. The teal card was also stamped with the specks background image.

Happy Saturday! I hope y’all are having a super weekend!

These “note” cards are for two challenges. The one on the left is for today’s IC232 challenge and the one on the right is for yesterday’s F4A12 challenge. For the IC challenge, I was inspired by the Notables sets.  I wish they had a bigger picture of it, but I liked the music and guitars in the pattern. For the F4A challenge, I made a similar card but only colored in the spotlight area. I hadn’t really done this technique before and it was fun.

All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. On both cards, the guitar was stamped and masked multiple times. With the masks still in place, I stamped the swirling music around the necks of the guitars. I stamped one extra guitar for each card. Everything was colored using Prismacolor pencils. I cut out the spotlight area using a Spellbinders Mega Oval, cut a slightly larger black mat and attached it back over the cut out area. Opposite corners were rounded and then edged w/ a black marker.

The black background was stamped w/ a music scrap image in black chalk ink and the spiral edge punch was used down the left sides. It’s hard to see the black on black here, but it’s visible IRL. On the left one, I scribbled more Prismacolors across a strip of white and stamped the notes, then cut around them. On the right one, I used the pencils to create a narrow border behind the black layer. The greetings were stamped and the music notes added. Both cards are 4.25 x 5.5 (A2).
