Monochromatic Cards With Chipboard

Hey All

It's Wendy back with some cool cards and this month I have gone a little monochromatic - which according to Mr Dictionary it means "containing or using only one colour".  I really like this style of card and chipboard lends itself really well to this technique as you can use a variety of different mediums to colour the chipboard.

For the first card I have gone green and embossed the chipboard with jade embossing powder.  In the second card the chipboard is a little harder to spot but it's there ......... yep the red glitter square is it.



The chipboard I have used is listed below - so go and give some monochromatic cards a go!

Keep Creating!
Wendy

October projects - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I have 2 scrapbook pages to share with you.

The October Colour of the month at Imaginarium Designs chipboard is "Blue". We would love for you to join in the challenge and create a project using Imaginarium Designs chipboard that is inspired by the colour Blue then send a photo to Jane at sales@imaginariumdesigns.net.au (before 25th October) and you will be in the running to win a fabulous chipboard prize pack!! 

My first scrapbook page has a photo of Rachael enjoying a coffee when we were at a recent University open day - OMG ... Uni next year, where did the time go!
I started with a sheet of 12x12 Kraft cardstock  and used a palatte knife to apply my fav Dina Wakley paints to the page (black, lapis, medieval, elephant)
I then added some stamping, then used gel medium to adhere some strips of tissue paper to the page. 
I matted my photo on papers from the Teresa Collins Urban Market collection and a silver paper doilie. 
I left some of the chipboard raw and coloured the words with a blue Posca marker. 
Lastly I added some cotton thread, a flair, splats of black paint and handwritten journalling.

I started with a sheet of 12x12 white cardstock  and used a painting with plastic technique to apply Prima Watercolor Confections "The Classics" to my page. Then I added some stamping using KaiserKraft, Prima and Carabelle Studio stamps.
I matted my photo on papers from the Teresa Collins Urban Market collection and torn strips of tissue paper. 
I left some of the chipboard raw and coloured the words with a black Posca marker.
Lastly I added some cotton thread, a flair, splats of black paint and handwritten journalling.

October"s Colour of the Month is ...

Good Morning and Happy October!
October is a busy month for me. I get to be head cook at a camp for 140 people for a whole week - starting today. Then 2 weeks later - I cook jacket potatoes for 1000 people (and no I haven't added an extra zero by mistake). I also have a couple of family birthdays as well. So this month tends to fly past. Before long it will be November, then December, and the end of 2018.
So the Colour for October is Blue - I will let you into a little secret - It is my favourite colour and as my birthday is in October, I though it appropriate to have my favourite colour and birthday month combined.  
I am really enjoying our colour challenge and would encourage anyone wanting to have a go, then do so. For every entry I received to date, I have been sending them all a bundle of our chipboard to play with.
To Enter - all you have to do is make a project with some of our chipboard on it and our colour of the month. Then send it to me at
sales@imaginariumdesigns.net.au or via messenger - Jane Tregenza. It needs to be to me by the 25th of October.
So let's see what Karyn has done to get the ball rolling.
Karyn is a master at layouts and has been teaching classes for me for quite a while. One of the classes she teaches each month is a layout + 2 Cards.
So today she is sharing her skills at card making with us.
Here is what Karyn has to say.

My inspiration project is 2 cards.The first is the card I made for Rachael's 17th birthday.
 
I started with a 6x6 Kraft card base and I added layers of papers from the Teresa Collins Urban Market collection and another layer of Kraft (I'm loving using Kraft with this paper collection!!) Then I added some tags and paper offcut strips. Lastly I added the chipboard (and left it raw), some paper flowers and splats of black paint. 

 
For my next card I started with a white 3x3 cards base then added papers from the Urban Market collection (again) the chipboard and paper flowers. Finishing off with diamenties in each corner - simple yet elegant.
