Stars and Stamps, the challenge blog for Operation Write Home, has started a new segment on Mondays called Design Boot Camp. This week is all about the ABC's of color. For my homework assignment, I chose the monochromatic color scheme - using variations (tint, tone, and shades) of a single hue. I went with two greens (fresh asparagus and green apple from Gina K Designs) plus vanilla as my neutral. I also decided to case the idea I've seen on various blogs using both the die cut as well as the negative layer. Fresh asparagus ink was sponged on the leaf while it was still in the die then popped up. Some linen thread and a sentiment and another card is born!!! I am slowly filling up my box bound for Operation Write Home!!
