March colour challenge at In Love With Stamping take 2


The colour challenge at In Love With Stamping this month is Neutrals and Browns (metal embellishments in silver, gold and pewter etc. are also allowed).

I love the monochrome look so I've stuck with it for this card:

Recipe
Stamp sets: Medallion, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP: Bride, Groom
Ink: Versamark
Punches: Eyelet Border, Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Other: White EP, Hodge Podge

To stamp the Medallion, I laid the inked up stamp down flat and pressed my card onto it. You have to be careful not to move the card around when you're doing this but it's easier to get the positioning right than taking such a large stamp to the card (I'd suggest trying both ways and see which suits you best). White EP was added and then heat embossed. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with White EP to match. The large flower brad from the Hodge Podge was added to the centre of the Medallion before I matted the layers to prevent in showing on the reverse of the card.

Take care.
