Simply Stampin' time again guys. This week we are back to a theme challenge once again. And the theme is...
Monochrome with a Splash
When I saw this challenge in the list I thought of yay that sounds like fun, and I had loads of ideas. Then when I actually sat down to make the card all my ideas seemed to abandon me and nothing seemed to work.
Stamp Set: Delicate Dolies, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Versa Mark
Cardstock: Wisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Velum Paper
Big Shot: Edgelits
Punch: 1 3/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, Modern Label
Extras: White Emboss Powder, White Gel Pen
I was thinking about this "lace" card I made for a SSC a little while ago and thought I'd try to do another vellum lace type card. I stamped the doilies all over the vellum and embossed with white embossing powder. I cut out a frame in my card and inserted the vellum. For my "splash" added some elegant eggplant as a doily and for the sentiment. To balance it out I also added a few strips of edgelits near the bottom quarter and a sliver of elegant eggplant cardstock. I added white and eggplant faux stitching and pearls to finish it off.
What did you think? I hope you enjoyed it and will join in the challenge over at the SSC blog. Thanks for stopping by!
