Make It Monday #294 - Monochrome Color Pop

Hello friends.  Stephanie is up this week with a fun and lighthearted video on making a Monochromatic Color Pop card for the Make It Monday challenge.

I've kind of been in a Christmas mood this week and also wanted to use my new Mountain Majesty Cover Plate die, so I created my monochromatic card with the pop of color coming from the sentiment like Stephanie did.


I love the look of blacks & grays with a pop of red, and thought that would be fitting for this night time mountain scene.  I blended some light gray (Smoky Slate) ink on my card base front and then splattered with water to give the look of a snowy sky.  For the cover plate die, I masked off the sentiment area and then blended a combination of Smokey Shadow and black inks over the mountain range and frame and then splattered that with some white acrylic paint mixed with a little bit of water.  Here's a closer up view:


 I used Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel inks to give an ombre effect for my sentiment from the O Holy Night set, and then added a few iridescent sequins to finish off my card.

Make sure you check out Stephanie's beautiful card and great video and then play along.  You can find all the info right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
