This one is called Monochromatic and I want to see a shabby chic and vintage project that uses basically one colour and its various hues and tones - a little white or cream can be added but unless that is the main colour, it needs to be just an accent.
I took the opportunity to make a father's day card as it's fast approaching here in the UK. I started by brayering some white card with various colours of acrylic paint. I stamped the numbers from the Tim Holtz Merchantile stamp set using Potting Soil Archival ink. I then used a Wendy Vecchi stencil with Embossing Paste on the vertical panel. When it was dry I blended more acrylic paint over the top using a baby wipe.
I stamped the main image then used the stamp itself to draw around it on to a Post It Note. I then masked off the image and stamped the text stamp from the same Tim Holtz set using Potting Soil Archival ink.
I die cut the ink pot, pen nibs and quill using the Tim Holtz die. I then dabbed Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste using my finger onto the ink pot and pen nibs. When it was dry I sprayed it with Distress Stains, Antique Linen and Tea Dye. I die cut the corner pieces using the Tim Holtz Mixed Media Thinlits from the Kraft Resist Tim Holtz paper stack. The word is stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink and attached to the ink pot with a Tim Holtz star brad.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
