Hello everyone! I almost typed in 'Eat more greens!' as the title. I don't normally use much green on my cards but I am trying to incorporate more plants into my diet, so maybe that explains why I have 2 cards to share today that are predominantly green. Or maybe it's simply because I wanted to create cards for a few challenges LOL.
Anyway, my first card was created especially for the current Let's Squash It challenge, where I am guest designing this month. I thought this was a good moment to ink up my NBUS dandelion embossing folder (part of an embossing folder and stamp set, Fairy Wishes, Practical Publishing) that I bought last year or so. I used distress oxides and a small brayer to add colour to the EF before running it through my die cutting machine with a panel of Crafter's Companion watercolour card. I repeated my inking with the various greens until I was happy with the coverage. I stamped the block of sentiments (NBUS Subway Art: Dare, STAMPlorations) using the darkest green ink. I used the photopolymer stamp but I have just discovered that is also available as a digital set, together with the Subway Art Create sentiments. For my insect, I used this sweet ladybug brad from a NBUS set that I bought from the Eyelet Outlet many years ago. On the spur of the moment, I decided to also stamp a snail from the Fairy Wishes stamp set. I did not want to trim my panel, so I added it to an A6 card base.
I'm linking up my card at:
