One Colour Wonder!

Hey! How are you? I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with this project.  
Now whilst I can’t actually claim this card is a wonder- it hopefully shows you that by picking a palette of ‘one’, you can actually create something quite pretty and with limited supplies.

Great news for those with smaller stashes- or just if you fancy a challenge with a difference.  

I’ve taken my inspiration from one of the challenges at Winnie & Walter’s Belated 2nd Birthday celebrations. They are such a wonderful company and well deserving of all the love that’s headed their way. This challenge was all about Gold and Watercolour; fun! The challenge is over but I still wanted to show my support for them by creating something. 

Apologies for the slightly weird photos- one of the down sides of photographing this card was the camera was struggling with both the glitter and the pink. Every picture just looked like it had pink hues on the white card! 

   Anyhow- who’d have thought you could get away with pink leaves?!! 

 These sets continue to be some of my long term favourites (which with a constantly evolving stash is no mean feat!). I mean, as we’d say in Liverpool they’re ‘gobsmackingly’ gorgeous!!

I’ve simply embossed in gold for all the leaves and white for the flowers. I could have done them all in gold but it helps delineate the flowers as opposed to the leaves which I thought was helpful when they were all pink!! I’ve coloured them with Zig Clean Color pens from Kuretake. They are wonderfully easy to use! 

I thought I’d show the previous version- just to show that ‘more is way too much’ sometimes. It took a little more paring back to get a better final result..  
Adding the white panel over the glut of glitter definitely was the way to go.
Do give the one-colour a go and check out the gorgeous leaf and flower stamps too!
Enjoy your day!

    Keren, stunning all in pink! I’m a huge pink and gold fan to begin with but the color combo of pinks you chose makes it so beautiful. I’d love to know what colors you used, I love this card. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    This is just plain “gobsmackingly” luscious. And I’m not even a pink person. I’ll just sit here for a while and let the drool run down my chin. Who’d have thought 2 colors of embossing powder would be the answer…oh, yeah, YOU! Genius.
