SUO192 Monochromatic Blues
It’s time for the #192 "Fun with Just One Color" Challenge at SU-Only Challenges! I pulled out a few of my new stamp sets- Hold on to Hope from the 2018 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2018 Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Amazing You to create a Clean and Simple Mixed Media card :-)
I decided on a blue color scheme and am incorporating the CAS(E) This Sketch #254 Challenge, the Alphabet “U for Use 3 of Something” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #316-#317 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challengesite to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using Stampin’ Write Markers- Night of Navy, Dapper Denim and Marina Mist to color the floral spray image from Hold on to Hope. “huff” onto the stamp before stamping onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Clean the stamp, re-ink again with the markers and stamp again onto the panel to create the scroll design.
2). Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. Mount the panel onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
3). Ink the sentiment from Hold on to Hope with Night of Navy Classic Ink, stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Die cut the sentiment with Stitched Shapes Framelits™, mount onto a circle of Night of Navy cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits™. Add to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
4). In the sentiment again using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool. Trim the portion of the sentiment “And I Will Rescue You” by hand and create a flag point. Adhere over the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
5). Ink the flowers from Amazing You with Night of Navy Classic Ink, stamp three times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Scribble ink from the Marina Mist and Dapper Denim marker onto a silicone craft mat and use an AquaPainter™ to watercolor the petals. Once you are satisfied with the watercolor, dry with a heat tool and fussy-cut out the center portion of the flower. Mount the flowers around the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Finish off the card using the White Gel Pen to add highlights to the flower centers and add shimmer to the petals with Clear Wink of Stella®.
