More Monochrome

Well here I am again which surprised me as I had no plans to get creative but yesterday when I did a momochrome card I had so much fun that when I looked at the card this morning it inspired me to do even more designs today. Again I used all Altenew products except maybe for some paper, ink and rhinestones.

Here is the first card I made using Gina K. Designs lipstick cardstock and then an Altenew 3D Blossoming Branches embossing folder which was inked up with a darker shade of red. I then die cut it and then added it to a white card base. Last thing I did was use a white Posca paint pen to add some interest in the flower centers and bird and the sentiment from the Altenew Watercolor Halftone stamp set..


The next card I made in monochrome blue. The Altenew stamp set used for the flowers was from the Watercolor Halftone stamp set. I also used the matching die for the set to cut out the design. I put that aside while I took a white card base and stamped a design in each corner and a sentiment from the Altenew Dot Art stamp set. The ink pad used was Altenew Persian Blue Crisp Ink. I then popped up the die cut flowers and finished by adding some blue rhinestones from my stash.



I hope you enjoyed my little creative adventure from this afternoon. I know I did. Take care everyone and thanks for coming by and leaving such uplifting comments always.

God bless, Verna

These turned out great! Love the red on red with the hint of white - so pretty! And your blue floral design is highlighted nicely with the corner stamping design.

Wow, that lipstick red is a gorgeous color and the embossing folder is a good one. The little touches in the center really made the flowers pop. I like the blue, that is a beautiful shade.

I've just started adding Altenew embossing folders to my collection but had not noticed that fabulous bird sitting in the blossoming branches - I'll be ordering that one. You've done a fabulous job at inking the folder. I never seem to get the good coverage that you got so that the embossing portions really stand out!
