Monochrome Team Challenge Card – Forever Blossoms. The first of these designs was made as part of a Team Challenge that we are running at the moment. The Challenge is in the form of a Bingo Card and we have been challenged to complete the whole board. This project ticked two squares, Embossing and Monochrome. The original was Black and White, the one I created for today’s video is more of a Sepia feel, which I LOVE!!
I chose to use the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and to heat emboss it, because that was part of the Bingo Challenge. That said, I love heat embossing, as many of you will know from the number of times I pull out my ‘trusty cheeseboard’!
The process is actually quite simple. Once you have stamped and embossed your image, you just need some Shimmer Paint and an Aqua Painter. For the Black & White version I used both Frost White and Champagne Mist. I used the Frost White for the flowers and the Champagne Mist for the leaves. The Sepia version I only used the Champagne Mist.
The finishing touches were to add some pearls and a sentiment. I used one of the sentiments in the set, but I wanted to only use the beginning of the sentiment, fortunately I was able to stamp and emboss the whole sentiment and then cut it down. If needed I could have simply inked up the words I wanted.
