The theme is White on White focus point.
I used an embossing folder and an Inside Out Diffuser to make my background. I then used Altenew inks in the Warm Gray shades - Morning Frost, Moon Rock and Evening Gray to stamp the flowers and leaves (from a Freebie called Christmas Rose) and the sentiment in the Lava Rock. I added some extra dots in a gray Metallic gel pen.
And now for a couple of more colourful cards.
This is using Catherine Pooler inks and stamps. The banners are from one of latest stamp sets from the Naturally Inspired box paired with a sentiment from an earlier SOA box.
and here are two I made using Gelatos. There is a Masterclass over at StampNation -Creative Mediums for Card Making- by Faber Castel. The first video was about using Gelatos. I have had mine since 2012 - but don't use them nearly enough.
For the first one I used watercolour card and spread a variety of Gelato colours. I blended with a damp baby wipe. Once I laid the stencil over it, I used the baby wipe to remove some of the Gelatos, leaving the bold colours beneath. I used the feather from the SOA box with three CP inks (thanks to MISTI for doing my blending) and fussy cut. I also added a die cut BEST cut from some more Gelatos on watercolour paper. To make it stand out, I off set it against a black die cut.
And the second one, used the left over Gelatos on the stencil, which was spritzed and laid onto the watercolour card. This gives a much more subtle background. I added a flourish down one side and after colouring some yellow and orange Gelatos onto card and punched some butterflies. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.
I also managed a couple more cards for some upcoming design work so all in all... a very creative weekend.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me.
