Monochromatic cards three ways

Hello again, crafty friends.

I have three cards for you today that are all monochromatic in colour scheme. Since my last post using Paper Rose products was rainbow themed, I thought this would make a good contrast.

None of the following cards has any colouring, but I have instead used coloured inks and papers to create my colour schemes.

This first card uses stamps from the Doodle Flowers stamp set. I selected just the leaf images, and stamped them in four different shades of green, ranging from bright lime green, to almost brown. I started with the larger images, and filled in the gaps with the smaller leaves.

The sentiment is stamped onto a banner which I cut out using the banner die that is part of the Polaroid Die Frame set. I have to admit that I purchased this die set just as much for the different banner dies, as for the Polaroid frame itself!

This second card uses the Beautiful Mandala stamp, which I’ve stamped in a kraft coloured ink. The word celebrate comes from the Sentiments 2 clear stamp set. I have heat embossed the sentiment in gold so that it stands out from the mandala, but still doesn’t take over the whole card.

This final card uses the country scene from the Into the Woods Stamp set. I stamped this in Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover Distress Oxides. You can see just a little of the Peeled Paint ink showing through from behind. I then cut the stamped panel into three even pieces to add some interest to the card. I have added a few sequins too, pulled from various sequin mixes in my little stash.

The sentiment for this card is a Frankensentiment from two different sets. I used the happy from the Mandala stamp set, and the word Birthday is from the Hello stamp set.

I hope this post gives you some ideas for monochromatic cards. If you’d like to see some more of my cards, including some more colourful items, feel free to look around this blog, or visit my Instagram page – donnadoll74

Until next time, may you have happy days,
