Today for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop we are featuring one of the least used colours in my collection. Poor old Mossy Meadow doesn’t get much of a look in generally but today, it’s front and centre on my card.

When I work with a rather strong colour, I like to tone it down with a softer neutral. In this case – Gray Granite. I really like how these 2 colours blended.

I stamped the leaves onto a label die cut using the Countryside Corners dies. On the base of this I added a piece of Take to the Sky Designer Series Paper and a strip of Basic White Cardstock coloured with Soft Pastels.

How to create the white panel

Use the Mossy Meadow Soft Pastel on the length to drag across the strip of Cardstock, filling it in with the colour. Then turn the Pastel vertical so the small square end is against the Cardstock. Draw lines at varied heights to create an interesting panel.

I created a Faux Suede panel for the background. This is done by scrunching up Cardstock and breaking down the fibres with a bone folder. In time, the Cardstock will peel apart, giving you 2 halves. I’ve used one half on this card and have one left for another project.

A few silver pearls strewn around work in with the Gray Granite and the check DSP.

I hope this project inspires you to perhaps try out a technique you haven’t tried before. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely Saturday.
