Thursday Dream Scheme Monochromatic Color Challenge

Whew!  That's a long title.  But the fun is just beginning.  Get out your favorite stencils, papers, inks or pastes and embellishments and play along with us for today's color challenge.

Picking a color was probably the hardest part because there were so many I wanted to use.  I began by attaching the Large Flourish stencil (LJ896) to paper and adding color using Splendor Inks by Tsukineko and a large sponge dauber, which worked better than a stencil brush for this particular application.   I positioned Thanks (LS1006) on cream card stock and applied the ink again, using the dauber.  The ribbon began as a piece of cream colored sheer, but didn't look quite right, so out came the inks and dauber and voila! – color coordinated ribbon.

 Check out the other blogs for more inspiration and don't forget to stop at the Dreamweaver Stencils blog, DREAM it UP! and link your project using Mr. Linky.  I can't wait to see what color you chose.

Happy Crafting,


  1. So pretty and pretty easy, too! Love that you inked the ribbon when you weren't happy with it. That's a great way to customize many embellishments!

  2. This is a very summery color your card as per usual!

  3. I love this and love the flourish stencil!!!

  4. Yummy colors and hues! Great idea coloring the ribbon to match with ink. The orange/peachy pearls are the perfect accent!

  5. Love the color you used Liz and I love the way you colored the ribbon to match.
