On to the next class in Level 2 and the title is Polychromatic. I watched the videos, took notes and watched the videos again. I finally decided that the mono color layout was the technique that was the one that I found one that I had limited experience with. I selected a large daisy like stamp from the Smile More stamp set. I thought yellow would be a good happy color to use for the card layout. The card stock is a light yellow from Stampin’ Up I had in my paper collection. I cut the sheet in half so I had more space to stamp the flower and then select the part of the paper I liked the best.
Stamping was done using Versaclair Cheerful Yellow ink which versatile ink. It is stays wet enough to emboss with and can be used as a dry ink. I dusted the paper with my embossing buddy anti-static poweder first. I used my MISTI stamping platform, secured the stamp to the cover, inked the stamp. I added clear embossing powder to the image, heat set it and then rotated the paper to stamp the next flower and emboss.
When I was finished I used my awesome set of Prismacolor pencils and the different shades of yellow that I had in my set. I started with the lightest shade of yellow to color in the petals. Then I used a slightly darker shades of yellow to begin the shading and coloring of the petals. I added a darker yellow for the center of the flower. That worked the best without being too dark.
Once I was finished coloring I selected the part of the paper that came out the best as I need to die cut a piece for the card front. The card layout was a horizontal one with a left fold. I used a stitched edge die from My Favorite Things for the yellow paper and for the piece of striped vellum. I die cut the Altenew hello from a light yellow card stock. I have a embossing and die from Stampin’ Up that creates paper buttons. I tiny hole punch allowed me to thread the jute string to tie a bow. Some carefully placed white glue for the hello die and then behind the die to glue the vellum to the card front. I few tiny pieces of foam tape for the paper button. Another class done!
