Flying By with a Monochromatic Hi

Lawnscaping Challenge #66 is to create a Monochromatic card. As all my OWH Bootcamp Enlistees know the monochromatic color scheme uses variations (tints, tones and shades) of a single hue. What, you don't exactly, quite remember the most common color schemes? Well, it was way back in January. If you need a quick refresher on Color Theory go check it out here.

I have four or five Lawn Fawn sets but at first I wasn't sure how I would be able to make a Monochromatic design that would work well. I spread out the sets I had, did a bit of thinking and then decided that this cute little plane and cloud combo from the Bon Voyage set along with the sentiment from the Flying By set would be perfect.

I love both of these small sets and since there wouldn't be any use for the 'Bon Voyage' sentiment where OWH cards are concerned I very often find myself combing the sets in just this way. I think this will be a fun card for a hero to send home to a young boy.

The clouds were stamped on white and light blue and then fussy cut. The sentiment is heat embossed and I added a bit of detail and dimension to the plane and blue clouds with a few markers. Overlapping the clouds gives the illusion of some depth but they are all glued down flat. The airplane is popped with some foam tape to add some fun dimension.

Happy Crafting!

Pinning this! The torn paper is a perfect "ground" for the plane and clouds. I combine those two Lawn Fawn sets too.
