Last Monday, TaeEun Yoo of Rainbow in November wowed us with her exquisitely colored card using the Penny Black Full of Glee stamp and alcohol inks. Today, we are so lucky to have TaeEun back with us demonstrating how you can get totally different looks using the same stamp. Take a look at this elegant and stunning gray monochrome card!
Hello, everyone! It’s TaeEun here again joining at The Foiled Fox blog as a guest. Today I have a monochromatic card to share with you.
I started by stamping the Full of Glee in light gray on a gray cardstock. I arranged the flowers on the lower half of my panel along with masking when needed. I then colored the flowers using a white Prismacolor pencil. I focused on the outlines and fine lines on the petals. I colored the leaves using light cool gray pencils and added shades around the image in gray as well. To add some bling I covered the flowers with Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen (or you could use a Wink of Stella glitter pen). I can’t explain but the clear glitter gave the flowers that subtle pink tone.
I die cut the colored panel using a stitched rectangle die and cut the wavy edge of the bottom part by hand. I added a thin strip of white card stock to the wavy edge and stamped the sentiment from Happy Wishes stamp set from Penny Black in Versafine black which I clear heat embossed. I blended Black Soot distress ink on my black card base and brushed Perfect Pearl Biscotti over it for more shine. I foam mounted the front panel on the black card base and added some clear sequins to finish the card.
Thank you for visiting with us today. Before you go, please take a minute and learn a little about TaeEun. Then pop over to her blog, Rainbow in November for more exciting projects.
