Ink. Stamp. Share. Monochrome Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. May Monochrome Blog Hop. You will be visiting blogs from around the world featuring projects created by Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This month we have been challenged to create a project using one color and I chose to use Flirty Flamingo for my card design.
 I decided to do a watercolor wash on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Flirty Flamingo Classic ink and an Aquapainter. I added the ink to a large area of the cardstock to create the look of a sunset sky. To dry the damp cardstock, I used my heat tool to dry it. 
 I stamped the balloon images and the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set (item #142896) using Versamark ink and I heat embossed the stamped images with Gold embossing powder. To add some definition to the balloons, I added Flirty Flamingo Classic ink to the images with the Aquapainter. 
To finish off the card design I added Clear Wink of Stella to the water colored background and added some Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. This clean and simple card design was created using minimal supplies and is a great example of how you can create simply beautiful cards with just one color. A reminder that the You Lift Me Up stamp set is retiring and is only available while supplies last or until June 3rd, 2019. If this is a stamp set you would like to add to your supplies, please order soon to avoid missing out.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my simple monochrome card helps you to see that it is possible to create projects using just one color. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
