Hello, crafty people! Michelle L here to share a tone-on-tone card with you today.
I think the tone-on-tone look lends itself to elegant cards particularly well. I decided to do a pale blended background using the Glorious Petal stencil from Hero Arts and Wet Cement shadow ink. I then stamped the sentiment from Messages with Flourish in Intense Black ink.
I stamped the layered roses and leaves from “Fresh Cut Roses” by The Ton on some scrap cardstock, and fussy cut them before layering them using dimensional adhesive. As I only have two grey shadow inks, I created the pale base layer by stamping with Wet Cement and then stamping again with Unicorn White pigment ink to soften the colour. The middle layer is then stamped with Wet Cement, and the top detail layer with Charcoal mid tone shadow ink. (Kudos to Jennifer McGuire for this idea!)
A little tip for you when using layered stamping – I found that it was easier to line up the stamps with the previous layers if the stamp was stained. Red Royal shadow ink works particularly well at staining stamps!
This month, we are so excited to be playing with stamps and sequins from The Ton!
I hope you have joined in with our challenge this month:
