Hi guys. Here we go with one of the projects we have been doing in our Monochromatic lesson this week.. I suspect that most of us would consider Black & White to be monochromatic? But to give it it's full description it is in fact tint, tone or shade of one colour.. I know!, we like to educate where we can here at Pinnacles... That said, apart from the oodles of samples I prepared for the lesson in various monochromatic tones, we have indeed been playing around with Black and White, with a hint of Red thrown in for those who just couldn't resist playing outside of the box.. You know who you are.. I mention no names!!..... CHRIS!!!!!!!! ;o)
So, here is my sample which everyone has followed, to a lesser or greater extent!
To start off with, I cut out a frame using the two largest shapes from Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight (S5-127) in black card.
I then cut just the largest die in White card stock.
Positioning the Black frame on top of the White to give me a guide
to place my stamped image on to.
I then added some foam pads to the frame
and stuck it down.
Before applying it to my prepared base card.
To fill in the open spaces I cut a shape from Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One (S4-377) in Black card
and in both Black and White card stock I cut the Marianne Creatables Flowers 1 and 3
and applied them to the card to complete the project.. This project works on so many different levels, in many different colour ways and therefore for many different occasions!
Perhaps for a Wedding, Anniversary etc
or just a general Birthday? Don't forget that it is our FREE demonstration day this Saturday (27th October) with the very talented Andy Skinner.. Just turn up any time between 10am - 4pm and be prepared to be inspired... See you there if you are able to make it!! Thanks for checking us out. See you soon. Andy.
