Today is another La-La Land Crafts Inspirational Monday showcase for you. Head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see the awesome creations from my fellow DT sisters. :) If you haven't heard, La-La Land Crafts is posting inspiration every Monday & Friday. My fellow DT members are split into two teams, Team Monday and Team Friday, so you'll get to see tons of ideas with the Marci & Luka line of stamps. You can participate too and upload your creations to the Gallery! We would love to see your work! So get your La-La Land stamps out and join us in our weekly inspiration.
The inspiration today is to make a Monochromatic card with a splash of one color. I felt Marci with Rose was perfect for this challenge. I decided to try something different and stamped Marci on cream cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I colored her hair with Copics E25, E33, & E00. The pink areas were colored with R81 and the green with G24. The rest of the coloring/shading was done with chalk.
I used cream/brown for my monochromatic theme and my splash is my favorite color....pink. I distressed all the paper edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. To bring in some additional oomph, I used two different Martha Stewart Punches: Vintage Floral and Embroidered Floral Edge. The large pink flower in the corner is from Recollections. The lacy ribbon/rose border was a long 12" strip that I cut down and is also from Recollections. The white flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Can you believe, I didn't use one sheet of designer paper?!?!?
The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Classic Message that I got from CropStop. The circle frame around the sentiment is from Fiskars Wishes All Around. I embossed them with Zing Rose Embossing Powder and then rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the cardstock. Marci and the sentiment are raised up on pop-dots.
Well, that's it for me. I hope you have a great 4th of July! I'm going to spend the day catching up with my 5-year-old to hear about his weekend adventures with his amazing cousins. A huge thank you to my wonderful SIL who took him for the long weekend so the hubby and I could celebrate our Anniversary!
