Monochrome Monday Series | ft. Stampin' Up "Birthday Blooms"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
So maybe it isn't a true monochrome because of the green, but then does gray really count as a colour? I'm counting it. This one is pretty straightforward, so I'll fill in with a little bit of an update.
If you've been reading over the past couple weeks, you'll know that things have not been awesome. My impression as it stands is that things are getting better. But then I thought things were getting better before and boy was I wrong.
It's a slow and incredibly hard road right now and honestly I have no idea what will happen at the end of it. There are still moments where everything is raw and painful but they're more manageable, they don't hurt less and it's always hovering right at the back of my mind, every now and then they'll resurface and it's hard to breathe.
Card making and art has been a fantastic distraction so at least I'm not running out of things to blog. I would like to thank everyone who has been reading along and all the private well wishes you've sent. They mean the world to me.
To begin, I stamped the large blossom from Stampin' Up "Birthday Blooms" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I wanted to go incredibly pale with this one, so I stuck with the lightest of the cool grays and only a touch of green.
I adhered the panel to a slightly larger piece of grey cardstock and then mounted the whole lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
To finish off the card I used some Glossy Accents by Ranger to the centre of the flower and some iridescent sequins across the panel.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
