Julie’s Colour Palette
My challenge for this months Cyber Crop is to choose any colour you like but your project has to be monochromatic,
meaning you can use any number of shades of your chosen colour with a minimal amount of black and white.
I have chosen pink for my colour.
I added Modelling Paste
coloured with Starfish Glimmermist through TCW Two Hearts stencil.
This added a lot of pink to the background and minimised the white.
I splattered the background with Artiste Spritzing Ink in Black Night, Glimmermist Cherub Pink and Glimmermist Iridescent Gold
The final addition to the background was random stamping using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and Kazzaz Reason Season Lifetime, Kaisercraft Grid and Kaisercraft Numbers stamps.
I cut two strips of deep pink and two strips of pale pink cardstock to 1/2″ x 12, inked the edges with my Versa Color Black Ink cube
and attached them to each other with the light pink on top and about 1/4″ of the dark pink showing above it.
I added a torn strip of pink washi tape to each of these strips and a pice of pink glitter washi layered on the first washi tape.
These were attached to the top and bottom of my page.
Time now to start with my patterned papers.
I used the floral side for the 1 1/4″ piece and the woodgrain side for the 3/4″ piece
I used double sided tape
to attach these to the centre of my layout, layering them on top of each other, widest paper on the bottom working up to the narrowest paper.
I also added two small strips of the glitter washi so they will poke out from
behind the photo when I attach it.
I am using a 6″ x 4″ photo, I have filed around the edge of the photo with an emery board before attaching it to a 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of the dark pink cardstock.
To give my photo some lift I have added a piece of sticky backed craft foam before attaching it to the layout slightly above centre.
To embellish my layout I have fussy cut
a doily from Serendipity – Carefree
and selected several items from Uniquely Creative’s Gums & Roses Creative Cuts pack.
I have inked the edges and attached them to my layout
The title is a tag from the Creative Cuts pack, I have added some pink ribbon and attached it to the layout with sticky backed craft foam behind it
Here is my process video if you would like to check out
Time to choose your favourite colour and get busy.
Remember you can only use the one colour, as many shades of that colour as you like and minimal amount of black and white.
Have fun and I’m looking forward to seeing your colour choices
Till next time

Hi Crafters, Louise here.
Cybercrop challenge reveal day. Today I’d like you to feature the colour “Orange”
Here is my inspiration “No Limits”
Just in case you haven’t realised, I am seriously enjoying this “No Limits” collection.
This layout features the “Honey Hive” stencil from Bee Arty, with Distress Ink through it.
Once I was happy with my design I added some twine for texture.
Here is the process video to see this layout come together.
Can’t wait to see your Orange inspiration.
