Monochromatic Challenge PSC28

This week was a real challenge for me! Monochromatic designing is something I've never tried. Not sure how successful I was really.

First-I want to share the definition with you:

Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue, and extended using its shades, tones and tints (that is, a hue modified by the addition of black, gray (black + white) and white. As a result, the energy is more subtle and peaceful due to a lack of contrast of hue. Monochromatic color schemes may be considered boring unless there is diversity within the design.

The second part of the challenge is to use a sentiment that let's someone know you are thinking of them.

I started with a digi image from our sponsor: Stitchy Bear Stamps -the oriental girl. I fussy cut her out and wanted red as my monochromatic color.  You are allowed to use neutrals as well.  My designer paper is from K&Co. I punched flowers -Martha Stewart punch. & the one butterfly is from Stampin Up diecut. I love the red with the oriental girl, just not sure if it's truly monochromatic enough. Will keep trying this challenging colorscheme.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
