Brutus Monroe – Tone on Tone for elegant cards

Hello, I hope you’re having a great week with lots of time to craft. However, for many, plenty of time to craft is but a dream, though you have found your way here so it’s all good!  One of the items I had to purchase recently was the Tangled waves stencil from Brutus Monroe which is an add-on to the month inspiration kit. You can also buy this separately, and I knew I had to get it! Although the pattern resembles waves, the pattern can lend itself to a range of cards no matter if it is sea themed or not. I used it today for a tone on tone look to create an elegant card.

*For supplies featured in this post, please refer to the links at the end of the post.

Tone on Tone Card Process Overview

Adhere the stencil down over your cardstock. Choose a colour of cardstock closest to the colour of the textured paste you plan to use. I used ‘Old Navy’ Tonic Nuvo mousse. Using a palette knife, spread the paste over the stencil for a nice even consistency. It is up to you if you choose to cover your whole panel or a portion. Leave this to one side to dry. Create another background on a scrap of cardstock by applying distress oxide with an ink smooshing technique (for more details on Ink smooshing see the end of the post for a link to an ink smooshing project). Once dry, heat emboss the dreamcatcher stamp in Penny embossing powder. Fussy cut this out and foam mount on to your card panel when it is dry. Foam mount the whole card panel onto a Navy base with 1/8″ border. Stamp and emboss two small sentiments and mat onto the card panel. lastly, apply a few sequins for embellishments.
