Lift Me Up in Monochrome

"Lift Me Up" Monotone Card

I’m loving this bundle!  I made up this card for one of our projects for our March Stamp Club. When I first took the framelit out of the pack, without thinking I put it down on some black cardstock I had sitting on the desk and the silver framelit on the black gave me an idea for a monochrome card. So out came the last remaining scraps of silver metallic cardstock (which I only just realised was retired!) and I managed to scrape enough together for all of our kits. The background is stamped with speckles from Gorgeous Grunge using Smoky Slate ink, the clouds in Memento Black (I prefer this out of all the black inks). I used Tombow Glue and a sponge dauber to apply glue to the back of the silver balloon and glued black cardstock behind and carefully cut around the outline of the balloon with Paper Snips, and then lightly sanded around the edges to neaten any tiny bits of black cardstock showing. The wording is embossed in silver embossing powder on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Simple but I like it!
