VIDEO: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Monochromatic Backgrounds

by Lydia Evans

Hi there everyone! Lydia here and I'll be sharing two cards with beautiful monochromatic backgrounds using the ever-so-pretty Sunflower Daisy Stamp Set.

DSC02682For the backgrounds, I used Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen Inks for the green card and Eastern Sky, Ultramarine and Azurite Inks for the blue card. I started by stamping the sunflower image. To keep this lighter, I missed out the base layer and used the other three layers. I just love the look this gives; it's much softer. Once these were stamped, I added over the  Sunflower Daisy Mask Stencil, then I stamped the daisy images, this time only using the second layer to give a lighter, softer look. I then covered the daisy images with the mask to fill in the white space with leaves.

DSC02685I simply finished off the cards with a sentiment strip using the Sentiment Strips Stamp Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

These are very pretty and I do like this technique that eliminates the first color. It gives another look to these beautiful flowers!

The monochromatic backgrounds and just lovely. Who would have thought that this would be so pretty? I’m going to try that with some of my Altenew layering flowers. Thanks for your great ideas!

These are stunning, breath-taking cards. Since the Sunflower Daisy has four separate stamps, and omitting the one that is the “all-over” stamp layer, and using only the 2-3-and 4 stamps was perfect. Thanks for showing your creativity on these cards.
