Make it Monday #245: Colour Isolation



This week at Papertrey Ink, Ashley made a wonderful card, using "Colour Isolation" as the theme, which is just using a neutral ink to stamp a background with the same stamp as the focal point. I loved this look, so gave it a try. I used PTI's "Fashion Sense" and stamped a background in Soft Stone ink, as well as Hero Arts Soft Granite. I watercoloured the main image with red watercolour paint and added the sentiment in white embossing powder. (WPlus9)



And here is another card I made, using Altenew's "Beautiful Day" stamp set. I combined watercolouring with stamping, then heat embossed the outline image in gold embossing powder for more punch. The card front was mounted onto Soft Stone cardstock, which set it off beautifully.
Thanks for looking!

  7. Beautiful, Kathryn. Love how you added the embossed flowers to your red dress. And don't get me started on the Altenew Beautiful Day card! Gorgeous! I don't own that set, but I rue the day that company started.

  10. Your red dress really pops on your first card. Great job on color isolation, Kathryn! However, your gold embossed flower and leaves on your second card are stunning. Have seen some beauties using Altenew's Beautiful Day, and yours is definitely one of them.
