Bunch of Flowers0

I love making tone on tone cards, using layers and texture really helps make them look very interesting. For this card I used:
- Papermilldirect White Smooth Card Blank
- Papermilldirect White Hammered Card
- Flower stamp
- Matching die (you can also just cut with a scissors)
I started by stamping my image twice and then die cutting it out. I only needed the top part for the second image so I didn't worry about the full image the second time.
I cut out the flower portion of the image and stuck it over the top of the existing flower portion, using lots of foam tape for dimension.
This very simple technique gives some great interest on a single colour card.
I added some more subtle interest with a white gel pen. I added some pearl pen over the top of this then.
I added some grosgrain ribbon using my favourite method of red line tape. It holds anything onto a card!!
I then added a die cut shape over this, on foam tape again. The panel then ribbon was adhered to was added to the card blank using foam tape too. The flowers in jar were also added using foam tape. This card has all the dimension!
I stamped a sentiment and cut it out into a fun shape to add.
Once the sentiment was added I went in with the white gel pen to add a few more highlights, and also the pearl pen to add some more 'dew' drops on the flowers, and some scattered across the background layer.
Cards like this are a great challenge to make, seeing how you can make one colour work to produce a card that looks finished. Do you like tone on tone cards?
