When you say Monochromatic, first thing that pops in my head is just one color and pretty boring. But most certainly, that is not true. Even if, you use just one color you can use different values of the same color to create highlights and shadows. Let’s not talk about the whole artistic expertise here as I am not one.
We at the The Flower Challenge blog are starting off this new year with a new theme for January 2022. Our theme this month is “MONOCHROME”
Here is my take on it.
Started off by stamping the beautiful floral image by Gina K Designs called Grateful Blooms with Hero arts Unicorn white pigment ink. But of course,I did have to heat set the ink before I started coloring as this ink dries slow.
I used Prismacolor pencils to color this beautiful image. After my image was colored in a slight definition of highlights and shadows I used the coordinating die to cut the image out.
For the background of my card I used the same Hero Arts Plum card-stock piece that was cut to 4 and a quarter inches by 5 and a half inches. I used Memory Box Matinee Rectangle die to cut out the middle portion of the panel and popped it up with foam at the back.
The sentiment is from Ton Stamps. Usually, I keep sentiment strips already stamped and embossed and cut to go on a card in an organizer, so I don’t have to spend time picking out the sentiments for my card.
Finally, I added some clear sequins with liquid glue, cut off the overhanging pieces of the image with a pair of scissors and called it done.
If you are interested, I have created a short video while I was creating this card. Enjoy!!
Hope you get inspired by my card today and if you create your monochromatic card don’t forget to share at The Flower Challenge.
