Let It Snow - A Pseudo Monochromatic Colouring With Ink Blending

Good Day Everyone!  My daughter's and my husband's birthdays are coming up, yes their birthdays are only two days apart,  I am super busy trying to get things organized and ready for them.  I have to admit that I weren't at my craft table that much this past week!

Anyway, I spent a couple hours making a card last night and took the pictures this morning to share with you guys.

So what is pseudo monochromatic colouring with ink blending...I invented the name myself, haha!  I don't know if someone has done it before, but to me it is really simple, easy and super fun.  With my Misti, I first carefully arrange the stamps on an A2 size white card stock so that each of them are in the middle of the four quadrants of the card.  I then stamped the images using different distress ink colours.  Then, I covered the card with post-it note and exposed only one quadrant at a time .  With the ink blending tool, I carefully apply a lighter colour of the same hue as the stamped image to the area, including the stamped image.  After I did this for all the quadrants, 

I added some colours and shades, mostly the same hue (that's why it is pseudo monochromatic), to the stamped images with copic markers.  I also highlighted some area of the stamped images with my favourite slicci metallic gel pens and doodled around each rectangular quadrant...look at the lovely shimmers on the images!

To finish off with the card, I embossed the sentiment using clear embossing powder.

The images are all from Hampton Art's clear stamp set from last year.  I can't find a link for you guys at all...sorry!
