Monochromatic Petal Prints

Yay!  I’m organised early this week for Linc’n’Learn.  Normally on a Tuesday nite while the kids are in the bath, I’m madly trying to make some cards for my group.  It does feel good to have them made already.  Now I just need to get myself organised for Wednesday nites Demo that I’m doing.

I now have a colour wheel, valuable tool I must say.  On one side it shows you colours that work well in a monochromatic scheme, so I thought I’d try it out.  I must say, I’m happy with the way they turned out.

I’ve used Petal Prints in all of the cards.

In this card I’ve used Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. For the main Flower Image, I’ve stamped the bold onto scrap twice and then onto my cardstock to give the softer look.  The open stamp I’ve stamped straight over the top without stamping off.  I’ve also sponged the all the cardstock.  The background stamp is French Script.  I’ve seen a few cards lately that have used the paper peircing template to make a nice pattern in the corners, so I thought I’d try that too.  I like the look it gives to a card.

The card above uses Cameo Coral and Ruby Red.  I wasnt sure about these colours together, but they’ve grown on me.  Again, a bit of sponging and paper peircing.

I really like the way this one turned out.  Sponging yet again, and I’ve just added some ribbon to finish it off.  The colours are Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke.
