SF-2023 March Blog Hop - Monochromatic March!


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we create wonderful monochromatic projects to share with you!!
I love monochromatic cards - to me they always have a certain elegance to them.  For my card I decided to go with tans as my color scheme.  I used the Online Exclusive bundle Irresistible Blooms for my project -
Irresistible Blooms #161150 $54.00
I love the elegance of this set - and it seemed perfect with this color scheme.
I started with  standard A2 Base of Basic White, and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Sahara Sand, which I tore diagonally - that gave me two pieces to use on two different cards.
I then used Soft Suede for my ink color to stamp random patterns on both the front of the card base and on the torn piece - and then sponged a little of the ink along the torn edge and around the layer for the sentiment. I stamped and cut out three of the smaller flowers from the set for my cluster - popping one up on dimensionals and coloring the centers with Wink of Stella.   I also stamped the sentiment and popping that up.  Here is a close up of some of that detail -

As you can see in the picture above - I used two pieces of our White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon - coloring one with an Ivory blend - and then tied a double bow that I added with a glue dot.  The final touch was I colored three of our Heart Pearls with the Ivory blend and added them to the front of the card.  Love how it all came together.
