Hi Sweet fans! It's Michelle here, and today's Double Take is going to be all about monochrome!! I'll be showing you how I made the following projects:
For my layout, I picked out a few photos of a recent
adventure I went on with some friends where we took some archery
lessons!! It was really fun, and a PERFECT opportunity to use that
bullseye stamp in the Wheely Like You set
(really, could there be a set MORE perfect for this occasion!?) I was
so excited that the theme worked so well!! I decided to pick blue as my focus color, and also used lots of black and white.
Here is a picture of my completed layout with some detail shots.
If you want to see the whole process of how this came together, I'm sharing it on my blog!
my card, I pulled out my gelatos - I only have one set and it has three
shades of blue, so I knew I just had to use them for this monochromatic
theme!! They've been feeling a bit neglected anyway. ;) I started by
heat embossing a stamp from the Speedy Greetings
set in white on watercolor paper. Then I rubbed my gelatos in an ombre
fashion, and then blended them with a damp paper towel. I ended up with
this beautiful effect:
I took some inspiration from a card that the talented Kristen Murdock Foreman made
for the October release sets, and decided to make some layers of "snow"
with some scrap white cardstock. Between and on top of the layers, I
added some trees and that cute little reindeer. I have to confess, I
steered away from the monochrome just to add some red glitter to the
nose of the reindeer - hope you'll forgive me!! ;D
Here are the stamp sets I used in my projects:
