Corner Garden- Monochromatic Red with Black :-)

Hi Stampers!

Here is another card using watercolor with a Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Black marker for the shadows and dark background :-)

This card was designed using the Colour Me! CCMC78 Monochromatic Color Challenge using Real Red.

I hope you will have the time to stop by the Colour Me! Site to check out the inspiration from their fabulous Design Team as well as the other wonderful gallery entries!

To create this card:

Using Stāz-On® Jet Black, stamp the Corner Garden background onto a piece  of Whisper White cardstock.

Using an AquaPainter™ with Real Red Classic Ink, apply a wash of color building up layers over the flowers.  Add additional Real Red to the flowers using the Stampin’ Write marker and softening the edges with the AquaPainter™.

Use a Going Grey Stampin’ Write marker for the leaves (over the Real Red  Classic Ink) and create the shadows with a Faber-Castell®  1.0 Black Pitt Pen Marker (I originally had a Real Red  watercolor wash for the background but it was a bit streaky so I ended up coloring over it with the Pitt Pen marker).

When the panel is dry, add a few white highlights with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker.

Cut the corner off with the Big Shot™ and the Circle Collections Framelit™- trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black, trim the Whisper White panel, mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Real Red card base to finish off the card.
