Brutus Monroe Blog Hop - Let's RE-Create
Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday, which means another Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team blog hop! This week, our assignment was to re-create a card that another design team member has made. I absolutely loved the dreamy feel of Marie's card pictured here with my two re-creations. Marie used blue tones, and I used metallic blue fading into green for one, and purple fading into pink for the other.
Marie's original inspiration was this video from the amazing and talented Kristina Werner, who called it the "dip-dye technique" in this video found here: Dip Dye Video
Here's Marie's card (if you don't already follow her on social media, be sure to check out her page because she is insanely talented!)
I taped my torn papers down onto some hardboard with purple tape and followed the instructions in Kristina Werner's video. To make the heart, I put double sided adhesive on some cardstock scraps, and foiled the cardstock before running it through the die cutter with a heart-shaped die. I used silver sketch foil on the green card, and purple sketch foil on the purple/pink card.
Marie used a floral stamped image on her beautiful card, but I cheated and used paper flowers! Brutus Monroe has some really cool packs of white and colored flowers that I've been loving lately.
I finished the cards off by heat embossing the sentiments in the Sterling color. It is a nice complement to the foil!
I loved this challenge because I am so inspired by my fellow team members! Have you re-created and inspiring cards lately?
