Mark's Finest Papers Blog. I love using the monochromatic technique and this week's challenge was "right up my alley", especially since blue was the color chosen for the challenge.
I decided to use the Grandma's Boudoir stamp set and some different shades of blue ink (Memento Bahama Blue, Paris Dusk and Stampin Up! Night of Navy). I started out by stamping my images onto Bang Up Blue in Memento Bahama Blue dye ink to create a background border on the card. Then I stippled Stampin Up! Night of Navy around the edges and then lightly over the card center. Once that was done, I took some K & Company vintage die cuts, edged them in SU Night of Navy using a marker, before adhering them to the card.
Grandma's Boudoir, I stamped it twice onto Corn Husk paper before using a Marvy Jumbo oval punch on one of the images and then cut the second image out for popping up later. I then took both my Marvy Mega & Giga Scalloped Oval punches and punched out two different shades of blue card stock for layering. After stippling some Night of Navy ink onto the smallest layer, I popped up the cut out cameo before adding some Stampendous Class-A-Peel stickers on each of the scallop layers.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
