Shades of Green!

Hi all and Happy Thursday! I am back with another Impression Obsession Challenge and this one will have you seeing green! Shades of Green is the challenge - so pick up those IO stamps and get those fingers inky! If you play along, you could win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!

On to my creation!


I have to say, I don't use a ton of green when I create, so this was a bit of a stretch for me -- in a good way! Instead of making the majority of my card green, I decided to just make that my pop color. I stamped the Daisy Dress Form in black on white card stock (I used Memento Tuxedo Black). Then, I picked up my Copic markers in shades of green and used G40, G43, G46 and G20. After I was done coloring it up, I cut my image out with the Spellbinders Labels Fourteen Die and while the die was still on, I sponged some light green ink around my image. I matted it onto a green piece that I cut with one of the larger dies in the same set. After embossing, I sanded the edges to reveal the paper's white core. Add a little flower, a rhinestone, some soft green lace, a rhinestone button and -- almost done! You can see I matted up my image onto some black and ivory decorative paper that I grabbed from my stash. I also added this sentiment called A Sweet Note.

And, here's a close up of my main image.....

Classy! I always like how you use your nesties. Labels fourteen isn't one I've noticed before, but it sure looks nice with your touches of green. Hope you are all warm & well.
