Monday Montage 40


Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop!  Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring projects.  Be sure to visit all 10 stops… don't want to miss anything!

I absolutely love the new Just Kidding stamp set.  Next week, I'll be having a Funny Cards Class and will be featuring the cards I'm sharing today.  With the discontinuation of the Blendabilities, I wanted to show a variety of ways to stamp and color with our line-art images.

ThatisnotevenaquestionKEEP IT SIMPLE:  I stamped the image and greeting onto a Whisper White note card with Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad.  The note cards are perfect for creating a quick card–they are cut and scored and ready to go!  I added a little color with a few Stampin' Write markers.  For the skin tone, I used a Blender Pen with Pink Pirouette ink.


DON'T COLOR AT ALL:  Black & White cards are cool.  No need to color if  you don't want to!  This card was created with the Mojo Monday sketch.  The On Film Framelit, Back to Black Designer Series Paper, and Real Red ribbon keep the black and white image from being too boring.  The "friend" is from the From the Herd stamp set.


WATERCOLOR:  On this card, I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Then, I used an Aquapainter and various ink pads to watercolor the image.  This layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

There is a complete list of supplies used on all of the cards at the end of this post.
