Monochromatic and Plaid

March 29, 2017

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.


Card One


Card Two


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
