Just before my Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit arrived, Jennifer McGuire posted a video called Monochromatic Coloring. I wanted to give the technique a try and the dark card stocks in this kit were perfect. I made two cards using this technique.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by white heat embossing the images and sentiments on panels of the dark colored card stock. I used a white color pencil to add some highlights to the images. For the darker areas, I used a colored pencil that was slightly darker than the color of the cardstock.
I die cut a series of stitched rectangles of the colored card stock and patterned papers form the kit. For card one, I adhered the outer frame and the patterned paper to the white card base. I used fun foam to pop up the stamped rectangle.
For card tow, I pieced the blue and patterned paper rectangles back together on white card base to create an inlayed pattern.
Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Wild Cuddly Critters
Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables
Paper: Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow
Simon Says Stamp Card Stock in Island Blue and Royal Purple
Ink: Versa Mark
Hope you enjoyed the cards
