Monochrome Card

Hello. I hope you are well. It is still very hot here. The past couple of days have been exceptionally hot.

Today I am sharing the monochrome card I made.

This morning I watched a YouTube video by one of my biggest inspirations Kristina Werner. This week is watercolour week over on her channel. Take a look at her videos.

Todays video was a one colour challenge. Kristina used one watercolour colour to make a card. She suggested during her video it would be fun to use a dark colour to do a card and I fell in love with the idea and had to give it a try.

To start I selected a dark but not quite black colour from my Gansai Tambi watercolour set. I used watercolour paper to do a wash background and added a darker section at the bottom for the ground. It took a few layers for me to be happy and it looks quite messy at this point but I was happy with the final result.

I am really keen to practice watercolour techniques more.

Next I selected the ‘upon a star’ stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped the animals on to watercolour paper and painted them with the same watercolour paint as the background.

Once complete I cut them out with my scan n cut machine and put them to one side.

Once my background was dry I used a powder tool over the sky area and stamped the sentiment with a clear embossing pad then sprinkled with Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. I then repeated this with the stars and used Ranger white embossing powder.

I then attached the animals and stars using small foam squares to add some dimension and complete the card.

I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by today.
