I am the hostess again for the Paper Players---just worked out that way, I guess, and I have chosen monochromatic as my theme this week. Some stampers have told me that they struggle with this, but I love using different shades of one color---especially blue! So can you guess that that’s the color I chose this week?
I just received my Northern Flurry embossing folder, and in keeping with my Christmas-card-a-week theme, I thought a fir tree and some snowflakes would be perfect:
The tree from Lovely as a Tree was inked with Baja Breeze, then “touched up” with my Pacific Point marker….can you see the darker trunk? I dabbed Versamark ink on the embossed snowflakes, then sprinkled them with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated them up. Too bad you can’t really see the dazzling effect:
The tree was dazzled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter as well, and the sentiment from All Holidays was embellished with some pearls. A narrow ribbon finished it off. Panels of Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze on a card of textured Pacific Point carry through the monochromatic theme. And here’s the inside, with a sentiment from Occasional Quotes:
We’d love to see how you interpret the monochromatic theme this week—just visit the Paper Players blog to find out the details. You can see all the other designers’ creations there too for some inspiration! Thanks for visiting today!
