SIP Challenge #187 Monochromatic with Gina K Designs Tropical Blooms Bundle

Hi There!  Happy Tuesday!  Did your week start off good??   This past weekend was so nice and relaxing that it really helped me start off the week right.  It's amazing what some rest and relaxation can do for you!  Hopefully this will be a non-stressful work week. 

This week at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a Monochromatic Card Challenge.  The funny thing is that as I looked at my cards for the last two blog posts, they were monochromatic as well.

As usual, when I started, I had no idea what I wanted to do.  I did know that I wanted an Distress Oxide Ink Blended Background so that's where I started! 

 I used a Distress Ink Blending Tool to blend  Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in both Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Ink onto a piece of  Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I spritzed it with a little water once I finished and used a paper towel to soak up the ink that lifted off.  I used my heat tool to dry it from both the front and back and then used one of the Stampin' Up! Rectangle Stitched Dies to cut the panel out.  Next I used the heat embossed using Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White embossing powder and Versamark Ink, the large floral image from the Gina K. Deisgns Tropical Blooms Stamp set.  I heat embossed "birthday" on the card panel in white as well.  The "happy" was stamped in Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die and popped up with Dimensionals.   I adhered the panel to a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Stampin' Up! Flirty Flamingo cardstock and then glued that on a Thick Whisper White top folding card base.   On another piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock,  I clear heat embossed the same large floral image.   I used the edge of the Rectangle Stitched Die that I used to cut the card panel, to cut it in half.  I adhered the first part of the image onto the right side of the card and adhered it with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  I used the same rectange die to cut the other part of the large clear embossed image at the bottom and left side and then adhered it to the left side of the card.  I finished this one off with three Pretty Pink Post Sparking Clear Confetti.

This is the first time I have attemped to use the same image embossed two ways on a card but I believe it turned out really pretty.  I hope you like it as much as I did.
