Tone on Tone

#122 Tone on Tone Background
Challenge #225 – Windows on the World

One card for two challenges hooray! I started with the tone on tone background using faded jeans ink and a large striped background stamp from GKD. Then to make it work for the sketch I cut a small panel from a stenciled background I had made a while ago for my hubby’s photography. I added that piece and then a small strip of tone on tone paper on the side. I had a piece of vellum sitting on my desk so I added that as well. This keeps it close to the sketch idea. By photocopying some playing cards in a reduced size I hand cut them and added them on top of the vellum. From the year of flowers GKD stamp set I inked the two stamps and added to the vellum as well.

    1. It is an easy one to do – I’ve done a few with playing cards over the years. They are great masculine cards.


    1. Thanks – You can make it easily yourself and knowing you, you would find playing cards on the Internet. I just photocopied mine from a pack I have here and then reduced it.


    1. As I mentioned to Gerry it is quite an easy card to make and you can do some very different layouts with the playing cards.


      1. I am better with stamps and dies. I do not have a photocopier or color printer handy, so maybe I will try this layout with physical cards. Those are easier to come by. Thanks for the inspiration!

  1. Thanks. I try to make my own embellishments sometimes. I could have bought a set of stamps and dies a while ago and then decided I didn’t need them.


  2. Love your background Jo and a great tip on creating your playing cards. Thanks for playing along with us over at As You See It this week!
