It is time for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC26)!!!
Did you know that every last Tuesday of the month Flourishes has a new guest challenge designer? I was ABSOLUTELY ECSTATIC when I was asked to be the Flourishes guest challenge designer this month!!! When Betty got in touch with me I swear i couldn’t stop grinning for the rest of the day!!! I was just so happy to be asked!!! Then I got that anxious feeling, you know…. those awful self doubts one gets… but that passed quickly because I was just too thrilled…after all I love working with Flourishes stamps and am so inspired by them!!
So, I chose to challenge everyone to go MONOCHROMATIC with their cards. Use ONE color, or shades of that color, along with ONE other neutral white or cream cardstock. All supplies and tools are allowed! I would love it if you joined in the FLOURISHES CHALLENGE with us!!
I chose to make a long tall card. It is a whopping 8 3/4″ x 4″ . When I’m making monochromatic cards I like to add interest in other ways, with an unusual shape or size, sponging for dimension and embossing for texture.
I used the Birds and Vine set, stamped in broken china (Tim Holtz) on whisper white card stock. I used my Nesties labels 4 to frame the image. The edges are sponged with Baja Breeze ink, and I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the vine for some shimmer. The embossed panel was done using the Script embossing folder (a gift, thanks Peggy!!) with my cuttlebug, and sponged over with Baja Breeze ink.
