It has been awhile since I have played along with The Paper Players; this week's monochromatic theme caught my interest and several ideas have been percolating in my head. I decided to tidy up/organize my stamping table and came across a piece of paper that I had water-coloured. When I made it, I wasn't really happy with it, but I kept it because I thought I would be able to use it at some point. I thought right! It was perfect to create this card for the monochromatic theme at Paper Players.
The "Thanks" die is from Simon Says Stamp - I love that it is big, bold and delicate all at the same time. I die cut it from the water coloured panel and then layered this on five white die cuts and inlaid it. I love the tone on tone this technique gives - a sentiment that is monochromatic with its background. I was going to put on some sequins, but nothing really looked right; so, I reached for my clear Wink of Stella and added a little sparkle to the sentiment.
I love the simplicity of this card - I think it would be equally beautiful in a colour wash of greens and blues!
Thanks for stopping by - I love to hear your feedback!
edited to add: I just missed the deadline for the link up darn.
