Stamping with the STARS #377: Monochromatic Color Inspiration
December 18, 2021
The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts377. This week we're sharing Monochromatic Color Inspiration with you.
- Monochromatic color refers to a color scheme that is comprised of variations of one color.
- You can use any color to create a monochromatic color scheme.
I still needed a few more Christmas cards, so I decided to use Monochromatic colors for them. And boy oh boy (does anyone say that anymore?), I'm delighted with the outcome. Take a look...
How'd She DO That? Peace on Earth card
- Stamps: Thinking Thanks & Peace
- Blackberry Bliss (4-1/4" x 11" card base, 3-1/8" x 4-1/8")
- Basic White (2-7/8" x 3-7/8")
- Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper (DSP) (4" x 5-1/4", 7/8" x 2-7/8")
- Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
- Other: Simply Elegant Trim, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals
- The stamped image is all on one block. Use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move color around on the dove.
- You might think the Blackberry Beauty DSP might be an unusual choice. But if you look closely, there are some lovely patterns that could be used for Christmas cards.
- For the small piece of Blackberry Beauty DSP I did some creative editing of the "owl" pattern sheet, so only see the wings were visible. Clever, right?
- See below for additional variations using different Designer Series Paper and monochromatic colors. (NOTE the DSP on these cards are sold out, but I thought I'd still share the inspiration in case you already have the paper)
- I used a very easy layout, which can be easily copied. Great for mass-producing!
- Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper, Night of Navy cardstock, Misty Moonlight ink, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, Basic Rhinestone Jewels
- Peaceful Place and Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate cardstock, Basic Gray ink, Simply Elegant Trim
If you have any last minute holiday cards to make, I definitely recommend this layout and the Thinking Thanks & Peace stamp set. You'll be done in no time at all.
