The color challenge was to use Whisper White, Basic Black and as many shades of Green as you wanted. I have used 2 shades of SU watercolor green to color the leaves on my SU Toile Blossoms image which was stamped onto Whisper White using Wild Wasabi Green ink and also sponged with Wild Wasabi before removing from the Nestabilities long rectangle diecut. My moss green grosgrain ribbon is by Offray, the green pearled brads are from Target and I have used Wild Wasabi to punch my accent sprigs with the Martha Stewart branch punch. My Wild Wasabi sentiment (Friends) is by My Sentiments Exactly and the (Sending you Sunshine) is from My Favorite Things. I have used green PK Glitz embossing glitter to add a touch of sparkle even though you can't see it in the photo. (sorry, I was in a hurry)
I did take the creative liberty of adding an additional panel under the ribbon treatment of the sketch. (Hope that doesn't disqualify my entry ... lol!) I just felt the argyle pattern needed broken up a bit before adding my main image panel and that the ribbon would show up better too.
The following is a complete list of ingredients for my card:
Stamps: SU Toile Blossoms, My Sentiments Exactly, My Favorite Things
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, The Paper Studio Inc. designer paper
Ink: Versafine black, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Nestabilities, sponge, PK Glitz embossing glitter, SU watercolor pencils & blender pen, Offray grosgrain ribbon, Target brads, dimensional tape,
Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow is Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) STAMP SIMPLY challenge and I hope to have something to share with you.
