I have mentioned before that Accented Blooms is a stamp set that is amenable to many different techniques. And perhaps you have heard that Accented Blooms is one of my favorite new stamp sets! For this card, I want to show you how you can create a monochromatic look with your Wink of Stella pen. As a bonus, you’ll get that little bit of shimmer & shine!
To start with, I embossed the image with White embossing powder and heat set. Then I simply colored the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella. The greeting is stamped in Tranquil Tide and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch. You’ll want to be sure and pop of the greeting on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Tranquil Textures designer series paper is the perfect fit for the background of this monochromatic card design. This designer series paper comes in Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Fresh Fig, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Soft Sea Foam, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.
- Base – 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
- Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Mint Macaron Layer – 3 1/4″ x 8″, scored at 4″
- Whisper White inside – 3″ x 3 3/4″
As I was creating this card with the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, I noticed this paper in the DSP pack. I embossed the image in Black embossing powder and then following the monochromatic look, I colored the flowers with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker.
What do you think of stamping and coloring an image on printed Designer Series Paper? If you look closely, you can see the color variation in the flower. So cool.
As you can see, Accented Blooms isn’t just for coloring in fun colors. The monochromatic look is special too! And you can get it with several different coloring tools – in fact, I’ll bet you never thought about your Wink of Stella as a coloring tool!
