ICS Blog Hop Monochromatic Mania



It’s the first Wednesday of the month…so that means it is time to hop with the Inspire, Create, & Share ladies! WooHoo! This month’s theme is monochromatic: ‘containing or using only one color,’ according to the dictionary. Monochromatic is not something I do often. I like lots of color! However, this was good for me to get out of my norm and do something different! Whisper White or Very Vanilla were ok to use as well. Although, sometimes you will see monochromatic art with black as a shadow. I might give that a whirl sometime, too.

I had gotten a Halloween card using this new fold and thought it was high time I made one myself…so why not for monochromatic? I chose Lovely Lipstick for my color with some Whisper White cardstock and the Parcels and Petals stamp set. Here is what I came up with…


I love the little flap! I’m going to make another of these turned on it’s side. Started that way with this one at first, but the sentiments were not working out in my favor.

Using the ‘stamping off’ technique is an absolute favorite of mine! Using it here makes the whole idea of monochromatic easier for me. Ink once and then stamp until the color is gone…it gets lighter as you go, obviously, and is still using 1 color = monochromatic!

Here is what it looks like when it opens…1573073653616.jpg
