On this week’s Facebook Live broadcast I did a bit of playing around with monotone card making.  You can watch the video replay on Facebook or YouTube.

This card puts Whisper White in the spotlight, with a shadow of Gray Granite to set it off.  If I were to make it again I might go for Smoky Slate instead, as a cooler gray, more in keeping with the silver in the Metallic Edge Ribbon and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  I used 3 Whisper White thick die-cut layers in each of the blossoms and sentiment, then off-set them slightly on a layer of Gray Granite.  The image panel is embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder for a little more dimension.

This card features the First Frost stamp set and one of the 2019-2021 In Colors, Seaside Spray.  I am in love with inking the Mosaic 3D embossing folder for a monotone background, which I also did on this card.

And this card shows how to use different shades of the same colour.  I stamped the leaves from Daisy Lane in Highland Heather first full-strength, then again for the stamped-off, lighter image.  The Gorgeous Grape daisy and sentiment just deepen the tone of the purple theme, and the Glitter Enamel Dots add sparkly fun.

Here’s what I used to make these cards:
