Monochrome medley

Lots of viewers liked and commented on my monochrome Christmas card made a few days ago so I thought I would have a go at a couple more.

They are very simple to make.

Both are made on 4.5 x 4.5 inch white card blanks and are stamped in Versafine black ink as I think this gives a really dense black coverage when being stamped.


I have stamped a swirly corner stamp 4 times directly on the card to make a frame and then added a printed plate in the middle on foam pads.

The second card again uses a different corner stamp but this time stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with  graphite sparkly embossing powder.

The tree was stamped as shown and the baubles spotted with a silver leaf pen.

The word was stamped on a piece of white card, trimmed out and applied on foam pads.

I think I will be doing more monochrome card this year and they are quite simply done too !
