Color Isolation

Hello and welcome!

Today's card is featuring a beautiful stamp set from Papertreyink, which is called Harvest Berries.
I've made this card for the Make it Monday at Papertreyink (#245), where the technique for this week is Color Isolation.

After I watched Ashley's video tutorial for the color isolation technique, I decided to use this beautiful ginkgo branch stamp.

I stamped the big and small branch randomly on a grey CS using embossing ink and clear heat embossed them to make a neutral background. I then gold heat embossed the big branch image on a piece of grey CS and fussy cut it. The sentiment is from Altenew. I mounted the gold heat embossed ginkgo branch and the black strip with the sentiment using some foam tape.

I want to enter this card also into SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday.

I have something other than a card to share with you today.
I want to say thank you all of my crafty friends who encourage and support me.
So I made an outline image for the hibiscus flower which I drew for my previous cards (here and here).
If you want, you can download the image and play with it :).  But please only for personal use!


I made it in two versions, one with thin line for someone who wants to try no line coloring :).
I hope you have fun with my hibiscus image!

Thank you for visiting today!

Stunning card TaeEun! That's a beautiful image you've drawn. I had to see what you created with that hibiscus image and I must say your cards are stunning! Awesome coloring and design.

This is works beautifully with the soft image repeat stamped in the background then the gold embossed branch over the top TaeEun, and the black sentiment suits it perfectly. Thank you so much for letting us use your line art to try for ourselves and I can't wait to have a go! You are a very kind and generous lady. x
