Monochromatic in teal


Hello everybobs!  this card is my DT card for the stampin for the weekend challenge site and the challenge this time is MONOCHROMATIC which means of one colour...
I decided to go for a rich colour other than pinks or browns or black and white and these greeny blue shades are my fave... I used a papermania butterfly collection stamp set which included the flowers teamed with Henbury lane papers from my stash. The butterfly was stamped out 3 times with the legs on the corner of the picture, then one whole butterfly body with an extra set of wings added for dimention. Coloured with promarkers i finished off with a touch of stardust stickles..
the card will be used to give to my oldest daughter who is 21 next week xx

Hello Karen

I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

Your cards are more sophisticated than anything I have done.

I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press.

Im'e a gilder mainly and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, there are now modern gold sizes that are simple to use, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well., like the crackle glaze and antique glaze.

If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders recipe which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

Good luck to us all.

Richard
