Camp Create Monochromatic Magic

Day four of Camp Create was about making a monochromatic background.  I didn't have three inks to do a background like Laurie's, so I did distress inks.  I put it on heavy at the bottom and used a lighter hand as I went up. After I had the ink on, I spritzed the background stamp with water and stamped it.  it gives some nice interest to the background I think. The rest is pretty simple.  I cut out friend from the finished panel and then again from black and then white cardstock.  I layered them up, white in the space left by the first cut, then black, then the distressed ink one.  It was a super fun card to make.

Have a fantastic week!  


  1. Rita, I love this card and love that it's just the one color. It really shows how you can use just one ink and come out with something so beautiful! I love the background and especially love how you've layered the die with the black. Very striking with the white embossed sentiment on the black...and of course the sequins! Camp sounds like fun! Hugs!

  2. I love your variation in color with that subtle background. The sentiment with the black panel, then the diecut friends is perfect with it.


I love comments! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. :)
