Hi there and happy Monday! This week it is my turn to share my Project of the Week with you and I have chosen to create some Monochromatic cards.
Here is a quick definition of Monochromatic for you:
1. of or having one color.
2. of, relating to, or having tones of one color in addition to the ground hue
I really like to create this type of card when I feel like I have been in a creative rut. It is a simple way to jump start my creativity without having to pull together too many colors or elements, therefore my monochromatic cards tend to fall in the clean and simple category. Below you will find a couple of examples.
First, as always, gather some stamps and cardstock/embellishments that you think would work. I knew I wanted to use the Repeat Impressions Large Lobster #2702-M and Large Sea Turtle #4103-K so I pulled some reds for the lobster and greens for the turtle.
Next, I stamped the images and started figuring out my layout for each card.
Next, I put the cards together and added some Clear Wink of Stella to both the lobster and the turtle and finished off each of the cards with some coordinating sequins.
You can see the shimmer a bit on the turtle card, but the lobster is just as pretty!
Thanks for stopping by The House That Stamps Built blog. We would love it if you would give Monochromatic a try.
Have a great day,
