TTC#4- Celebrations and monochrome

Wow, its September already! Pretty soon we will be saying Happy new year! Time really does fly! Well a new month means a new challenge at The Twisted Challenges.

So what twisted challenge do we have for you this month?
This month we are asking for projects with Celebrations (Birthdays, anniversaries, festivals, graduations etc.) as a theme BUT BUT BUT we want you to stick to a monochrome palette of colors. You can use neutrals but minimum use of it! Neutrals like white, black, kraft!! Howzzat!

So this month, I have 2 cards for you. I couldn't decide which to share so I am sharing both with you! Both use the same technique with minor differences.

In this gorgeous blue card, I have used distress oxide lifting technique to get the fabulous monochrome effect.
  • Started by embossing the Wplus9 stamp( finally something other than Mft😂), Kind soul on the Bielo cardstock (from The Craft Shop), with white embossing powder.
  • Then I added Salty ocean and Blueprint sketch oxides generously using blending tools.
  • Once the inks were dry I used water and paint brush to paint with water and dab it off with a tissue to lift off the oxide color. Jennifer Mcguire has a beautiful video on this, you can watch it here.
  • I repeated the process twice to remove more color as I wanted more contrast. Finally I cut the panel to size and glued it to a 5x7 card base from Letz craft.
  • The die cut sentiment is from Mft.

The second card is on the same technique.

  • I used Altenew Beautiful day stamp and heat embossed it in white.
  • Used Fired brick, Candied apple and abandoned coral distress oxides for blending.
  • I did the water lifting but didn't get the results I wanted. So I used Frost white ink from colorbox to paint the flowers. It added just a subtle touch to the card.
  • Added few enamel dots and mounted to card base from letz craft.
  • Die cut shape from spellbinders die, sentiment was stamped from Simon says stamp, Beautiful flowers!
  • And glued the die cut on the card panel with foam tape.
