Good Morning Ladies,
Today's card is a lovely bright, juicy pop of colour, it's Stampin'Up! 'Lemon Lime Twist' of course, such a gorgeous colour, it's one of my favourites for sure.
Now today's Challenge is for you to make a 'Tone on Tone" colour scheme, which basically means you make a card using just one colour other than your base card colour, it can be any colour you choose, mixed with white or black or any base colour you fancy. I just used a white base card, I then created my background piece by first inking through a mask onto the card, I then spritzed it with water and ran it though my Platinum with the Hardwood embossing folder, which is an extra thick one. Then I inked up my brayer and lightly swiped it over the raised embossed areas to pick out the details of the Embossing, all with 'Lemon Lime twist' ink of course. I added this to my base card and then stamped my sentiment on white card and die cut it with a 'Lots of Labels' die, adding a Matt of the same colour.
I stamped three of the 'Flower Shop' Pansy stamps and punched them out, adding small diamanté to the centres of each flower and then cut another to dress my ribbon bow with, this had a small faceted sparkler to the center. A few leaves in same colour way finish my floral element. I arranged them around the sentiment, with the matching ribbon bow in the opposite corner. I wasn't sure about having everything in the same colour at first but it really grew on me.
I hope you enjoy having a go, you could keep it simple and do 'White on white' which is always a winner or go all out like I did!
The card can be any style and design you choose.
I look forward to seeing your cards.
We should hopefully be finishing our journey today and arriving at the Campsite, fingers crossed!!!
I hope that you are all well and those that are feeling under the weather have a brighter day.
Lilian, how did you GP visit go? Fingers crossed they have you on the right track to recovery, sending hugs
Love and hugs to all of you,
