As you recall from my previous posts I am doing greeting cards for the challenge that Kristin is holding over at Twinkle Twinkle called the Colour of Summer. Week 2 is the colour Green.
Wow my favourite colour and I had no trouble finding green in my stash. When I buy paper I always tend to go towards greens so this was no problem for me. In the challenge for an extra added bonus we were to add the colour citron also so when digging through my papers I found this wonderful cardstock that had both shades I was wanting to use. How cool is that? I found a die cut that I had previosly cut for another project and never used so here is Tim design painted in 3 various shades of slip slap green with a bit of citron dabbled here and there. If you click on the card you can see a larger version and all the colours of the houses. I also added some interest to the windows. I cut small various colours of cardstock with green in it and put them behind the house windows and edged all the windows in gold metallic pen. The border below the houses is also a green border and I also inked the edge of the cardstock in Peeled Paint distress ink. How green is that? I found a tree that I liked with a nice verse, Bloom where you are planted and stamped that as well in Peeled Paint. Last but not least I found some K and Company little butterflies with a bit of Green and Citron and applied them as well.
This card will go in my stash for a cheer you up or new home or to just say hello card. Not sure yet but it will find a good home sooner or later.
