Colour Me... Monochromatic!

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

I'm super excited to be here today sharing my first project as a member of the Colour Me...! Design Team!  We're going monochromatic this week, and I thought the chosen color, Stampin' Up's Real Red, would be perfect for a thank you for my big kiddo's baseball coach.  It's hard to believe that there are only a couple of weeks left in the season.
I started this card by smudging Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist, as well as spritzing it and Chalk Glimmer Mist, onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I then stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with the "thank you FOR EVERYTHING" sentiment; trimmed its left edge with a strip of red, polka dot, patterned paper; and machine-stitched, with gold-threaded, straight stitches, a frame around their combined edges.
The connection of the two papers was wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, which was tied, in a bow, near the top edge of the prepped piece before adhering it, with foam tape, to the White, cardstock, card face.
A Cameo-cut, from Whisper White and Riding Hood Red cardstocks, baseball overlaps the watercolor piece's right edge; and a sprinkling of gold star sequins, as well as clear gemstones, completes the look.
Here's this week's Creative Challenge No. 78 graphic to get you started.
Be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see how the rest of the team was inspired.  We'd also love to have you play along with us!  You have until 12 noon EST, on Monday, July 6, 2015, to link up your takes over at that same challenge link above.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!
