Hello and welcome to August!
For our new challenge "Monochromatic" over at Country View Challenges I made a fun card, using the palette of many brown tones.
For the background I went over a piece of Bristol paper with Distress Ink Antique Linen, spreat the ink with a foam pad and put a stencil from finnabair called "Mind Games" on top. Then I sprayed some water and let it sit for a while. I dabbed the excess with a cloth and dried everything.
Now I took the same DI and a make up brush and accented the letters inside of the squares - unfortunately you can´t see too much of it, but it looked very cool!
To tone down the color, I used a brayer with white Gesso and rolled over the background.
The picture from the vocal point is a sticker from finnabair´s "Words you need" sticker set. I matted it on dark brown and beige cardstock, glued some cardboard underneath and glued some threat behind.
The frame I built with lace from my stash, then I glued everything onto the card.
Only some embellishing was left to do: I glued some metallic stickers from my stash around the vocal point and a redish-brown flower and my card was finished!
Here are some close ups:
I hope you like it and feel inspired to make some monochromatic art for our challenge! As you know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
