I have an all white card I made recently. I'm not sure I'll have time to complete any new cards today or for a week or so (besides the ones I have to get ready for my SIL before tomorrow - eek!) so I'll post this as a slight cheat and hopefully you'll forgive me. All texture, no color:
When I saw the challenge I remembered I had some remnants of a pack of different greens, and I decided to try a take on your geometric design, Linda . Even managaged to work in some mesh I found deep in the drawer where I was looking for those papers!
I used a piece of fussy cut scrap cs as a mask to create the "snowdrift" bg with TH oxide ink. I then stamped the images and finished off with Nuvo white drops and glitter. Even covered up a greeting on the one stamp I didn't want to use here.
This last one, I inked over the embossed bg, added some bling, and then just started layering:
scrapnnana, that is a lovely card. Sympathy cards are hard, but you have really created something beautiful here. I love those dark green border strips with the softer colours/patterns: gives the whole page an elegant feel.
Here's another one with the same supplies as the one above, except I added some green plaid pp and then decided to decorate the tree with Nuvo "garlands". Made a bit of a mess of that, but I kind of like the result.
I managed a card this evening I enjoyed this challenge, right up my street thank you Linda
Digital vellum skills are improving, it's going to be on everything at this rate! I drew or made everything. Fonts are Novecento and Montic.
joblackford white on white is perfect for a wedding card, and yours is beautiful
grammadee I like all your different versions, and smiled to myself at your description of just looking around your desk to see what was there. I love that snowman card though I like your Nuvo garland too, garlands don't have to be perfect on a tree, ours never are!
scrapnnana those greens are beautifully soft against the starker lines, lovely card
I used the ink smooshing technique with distress oxides to make the background. I think salty ocean, faded jeans, and blueprint sketch. The snowflakes are die cut from some light blue vellum and the word is from SSS. The shadow layer looks silver/gray but it's actually a light grayish blue cut from some metallic paper from Nasco, I think. The dark blue cardstock is from bazzill. After using some tombow mono multi to adhere the snowflakes, there was some stickiness on the front so I dabbed some ultra fine blue glitter on it in those places.
eta: now that I look it's kinda blah. lol. I might have to add a few sequins.
Here's my monochromatic card for this challenge. I used a Cerulean Blue watercolor as my base color then created lighter and darker shades of it to keep things monochromatic. To help the white embossed sentiment "pop" against the background, I added a drop shadow around everything using a dark gray marker.
Oooh, 2 new blue cards. They're both gorgeous gale w and CoffeeCrafter! CoffeeCrafter I really like the effect of the drop shadow. It really does help everything pop. I might have to try that. gale w I think your card is lovely. You could add a little sparkle with sequins or nuvo drops, but I don't think you need to.
SORRY THAT I POSTED ALL OF MY CARDS ON THIS POST. IT WAS JUST SUPPOSED TO BE THE FIRST PEACOCK CARD!They were demo-ing these new markers at Scrapbook expo & I loved how we got such a beautiful watercolor effect along with the loveley background. I was happy to be able to turn this into a card for my lovely niece.
