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.

For 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.

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

For a video showing how I created please watch the video below or over on YouTube:

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!

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.
