Pink is the color I chose for my Paper Player’s monochromatic project this week, and this piece of marble from nature is showing the varying shades.
For the second requirement of keeping it clean and simple, I used just one piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.
I cut the heart from the DSP using a Be Mine Stitched die, along with several layers of retired cardstock, for thickness. Then , I adhered this DSP with the hole in it to a Petal Pink card base. After applying dimensionals to the heart, I placed it back in its spot, without disrupting the pattern of veins in the stone. You could call this the “eclipse” technique.
This fabulous DSP is an actual photograph of marble, which made me think of the expression, “carved in stone.” So, I put my Labeler Alphabet stamp set to use, and stamped the required letters in Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White cardstock. I used my Paper Snips for cutting, and lined up the letters as you see. A little imperfection is their charm.
The words, “love you” are from the Well Written die set, and cut from another pink pattern of Petal Promenade DSP. After giving them one extra layer of cardstock, I glued them in place, and my clean and simple, monochromatic, card was complete.
I am drawn to monochromatic projects, so I can’t wait to see what my fellow designers have created. Thanks so much for coming to my blog, now let’s check out the others!
