Hi friends, hope your week is up to a good start!
While checking out this month's first theme for the INSPIRATION STATION Challenges, I noticed things a little differently than the usual.
Instead of using horse, lady or the scenery, I looked the theme as in an outdoor activity and monochromatic layout; and so I replicated this using my creativity.
Take a look at it,
To create this card, I started by tearing a scrap cardstock into a rough terrain and hills.
Using these as stencils, I ink blended hills and for a good perspective, used darker shades for the layers upfront, on a 4x6.5" white card panel.
For the slopes, I used muted tones and then again darkened the tones for declining slopes.
Now, for the other elements, I used one of the cutest stamp sets from MFT - Happy Campers stamp set.
I stamped the trees and the happy owl using the lightest distress ink color I blended with.
Using copics, I colored the trees, the tent and the owl.
However, just for some interest, I colored the owl in earth tones, thereby breaking the monotonous look!
For the sentiment, I white heat embossed on black cardstock, cut that out and foam mounted it.
I loved how it came out!
And I hope this card inspires you to try monochromatic scenes and join in the fun challenge as well!
Don't forget to share your creations too...
B-Bye and Keep crafting!
