Here’s a wedding themed card I have made using a grey tone. Usually I love working with colour, but there is something about this silvery grey shade that I find so enchanting right now.
I used a pretty flourish stamp to create the background. I simply stamped it once, then stamped above the first image, and kept going. Because i was using a clear acrylic mount it was easy to see exactly where the image would be stamped. This is a lovely way of creating custom made backgrounds for cards and scrapbook pages, although a little time consuming the end result is definitely worth it.
Once I had stamped all over the front panel of the card, I took my ink blending tool to bring some subtle colour onto the edges of the card. The grey panel is simply an offcut from another project that I repurposed – made by swiping the Pumice Stone distress ink across some cardstock – this is usually called the direct to paper technique. I love the way that this technique allows you to make your own custom coloured cardstock so you can have an exact match with the stamped images on your project. You can see me do this technique in action by watching the following video -it actually shows you how to use your Distress inks in four different ways.
I’m not sure why the bow looks a little yellowy in the photo because it’s not like that in real life but hey, never mind. 🙂
