Shades of Blue

Sometimes, OK a lot of times, I love creating cards that are monochromatic. All different shades of the same color or even all the same shade.

It's simple and clean and you don't have to do any coloring (which I have not perfected, yet).

For this card, I used a piece of Stampin Up's Print Poetry pack.
I stamped the Blooming Kindness flower onto Whisper White card stock and then stamped and cut out a small butterfly that I had stamped from a TAC stamp.  I added a couple of  pearls to the butterfly.  I layered the image to the Print Poetry and then layered that onto a white card.

Here is another look at the same set done a little differently.

On this card, I stamped all over my white card stock and then cut out some of the flowers and added them on top for added dimension.  I even stamped some of the flowers using Versa mark and then embossing those with white EP.  I stamped a little butterfly that I had from TAC and cut it out and added it on top of one of the flowers.

It just goes to show that you can take one stamp set and do a lot of variations using different techniques.

I think one of these days I will take a stamp set and try just that....see how many different variations I can come up with.

Have a great day!!
