Monochromatic Floral One Layer Card

Hi Friends!

I hope you are having a great week so far!  I had a chance to spend some time in my stamping studio today and decided to create another One Layer Floral card using the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC406 Color Challenge along with Splitcoaststampers’ Alphabet“N” Challenge (I chose neutrals for my “N”).

I know, why would you create flowers with brown and grays?  Not sure, but when I saw this color combination, this card came to my mind- lol!!

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- it always amazes me how many different cards can be designed with one color, sketch or theme challenge!

To create this card:

Use a bone folder to score and fold a 4 ¼” x 11” piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Create a diagonal mask from a piece of scrap paper and tape down to a craft mat using washi tape (or any tape that will lift easily from your paper :-)).

Ink the large flower image from You’ve Got This with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto the card base. 

Stamp an additional flower onto a piece of sticky note paper, fussy cut the image to create a mask and repeatedly re-ink the floral image and stamp along the diagonal line as well as in the corner.

Color the blossoms with the Stampin’ Write Crumb Cake marker, add additional shadows with the Smoky Slate marker and use the AquaPainter™ to blend the colors.

Add more shadows with the Basic Gray marker (I also used the re-inker with the AquaPainter™) until you are satisfied with the colors.

Using the Smakin’ Acetate technique, scribble some color from the Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate markers into the center of a clear envelope (cut open like a book), spritz the ink and close the envelope, use your fingers to “smoosh/smack” the colors together, re-open the envelope and lay the card front into the ink.
Close-Up to try to show the sparkle :-)

Ink the Timeless Textures border stamp with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp around the border.

Add additional distressing with the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures and Smoky Slate Classic Ink.

Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Archival Pad™and stamp onto the card front.

Use a ruler with the Basic Black Stampin’ Marker to add the line on the diagonal and apply Clear Wink of Stella® to the flowers to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: You’ve Got This, Rose Wonder, Timeless Textures

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, Basic Gray Stampin’ Archival Ink, Crumb Cake; Stampin’ Write Marker- Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Basic Black; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Extra Thick Whisper White

Accessories: AquaPainter™, Ruler, Paper for masking

Thanks again for stopping by!!  I hope you have a fabulous week, my friends!

What a fabulous card Julie - so much texture and dimension for one layer! The grey flowers do work really well; sometimes it's good to be different! Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
