You Are Amazing…….

Hello, I have a floral monochrome card to share today, using one of my favourite layering stamp sets from Altenew:

I stamped and layered the inks using a grey ink set from Altenew – actually I used two grey inks sets – not sure whether I wanted a completely grey/grey or a more warm grey – and looking at this photo, they look a little browny/grey………………hmmm…….yet on the close-up photo they look different again:

Anyhoo – once stamped and die cut, I set them aside to think about my base layers.

The base card is white, with a darker grey layer – ‘mushroom’ from Concord & 9th – then when adding the flowers I felt they got a little lost, so I used the ‘Pocket Banner‘ from Altenew, and added some interest to the white of that with a stencil and some Altenew embossing paste.

I did toy with the ide of adding some grey ink to the whit paste – but I like the white-on-white look for this banner, letting the roses stand out more.

Once this had dried I started to place the roses and stamped leaves down – I didn’t like the look of the stamped leaves, so I turned to Altenew ‘Garden Picks 3D die set’ for the layered leaves, and some ‘Dove’ card-stock from Concord & 9th.

Once again, I left the sentiment until last, but this time I remembered to do the stamping and embossing BEFORE I stuck everything down – something I usually forget!

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. What a stunning card in the most elegant neutrals! Love the paste background too.
    I find that putting a warm grey next to a cool grey tends to make the warm grey look very brown – but that can be useful as in your beautiful card 🙂 Vicky x
