You know when I get stuck on a technique, I seem to do nothing but that one technique for several card designs. Yesterday I tried the grid design from the Technique Junkie newsletter and I'm back again today with another one.
I decided to make this one monochromatic after reading the Daring Cardmakers challenge of one color cards. Everything on this card is a shade of blue except for the grid lines. I felt they needed to be black for better contrast.
For stamps, I used Paper Trey Ink for the 2 step butterflies and tiny flowers and Green Grass Stamps for the sentiment. For inks, I used all shades of Colorbox Chalk Inks: Ice Blue, French Blue, Prussian Blue and Blue Iris. The squares that I colored in are colored pencil and baby oil for blending.
I originally had the grid lines thinner on this go around but I have to say, it just didn't look as good to me so I went back over it with the heavier line. I think I am liking the heavier line all in all.
I can easily see myself getting stuck on this technique - I'm going to have to go back into the newsletter for another one!
