Monochrome cards... different colours.

People often think that Monochrome Cards are just black and white, but here are some using colour.

Using black and white can produce some dramatic results, and can be for various occasions.

But the dictionary definition of "Monochrome" is ...a picture in one colour, using light and shade... 

So there is nothing to stop you using colour to make some cards with a one colour theme.

(And I know that, strictly speaking, some are not just one colour....but the white is effective! So I cheated a little bit....)

The colour that you use can be any that suits your recipient, and the patterns can be flowers, spots, stripes, paisley...anything that you have in your Paper Stock.

But here I have tried to keep all the patterns and tones blending, complimenting each other for a soft and gentle card.

The matting and layering is all done using different shades of green...

...and green is used again for the panels in this card.

They are layered onto silver for effect but the overall colour is just shades and tones of green.

Gemstones and Peel offs are used to add decoration to the finished card.

Don't be afraid to experiment in your cardmaking and for help with choosing colour take a look at the Colour Wheel

It will help you to put contrasting schemes together for some stunning results.
