How Green is your Spring!!
A flickr friend Marcy is hosting the challenge this week over at Our Creative Corner the challenge is to make something for spring using green as the main colour. I had some time in between gardening today to play along with the challenge using my latest stamp, "Meadow Silhouette from Hero Arts.
I have again used Distress stains and inks to coat my stamp before spritzing with water and stamping, it creates this beautiful watercolour effect which I love. I have then cut the image out with a spellbinder die. The background image is the Hero Arts large flower stamped in Memento Green and then distressed with Bundled Sage. Next I stamped the Simple Frame over the top and cut out the middle section. I then stamped my base card with the frame. The central oval is attached by a couple of brads, I decided not to stick it completely down as I like the way it is lifting at the edges.
I am also going to enter this in the new challenge over at "A blog named Hero".
Heres wishing you a great Easter, its so nice to have a long weekend.... Have fun!!
