A bit of green on green


       I have a new die and some new inks ... testing them out a bit.  On white card stock I used a Penny Black border edge die which a got a thump print on.  That pushed me into going over the entire piece with green ink ... blending in different shades.  I used Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Evergreen Bough.   Then dropping water droplets onto the color to lift.
          The sentiment was stamped with Green StazOn and heat set with clear embossing powder.   I then brushed the edge of the entire card with Twisted Citron with rounded edges.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:
QTR:  Monotone - shades of green.
Creative Corner: Favorite colors
Through the Purple Haze - ATG

Thank you for peeking.
Have an amazing week.

Happy Happy


     This was a color piece that I've had on my work table for a over a month.  It started from a challenge technique long ago with blending distressed inks and then using a stamp with water to reverse stamp.  I loved how it came out, but never had the time to come up with something to finish it.  So since it was clean the craft room day ...  today was the day,  I don't remember which distressed inks I used, I believe I see peacock feathers, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, seedless preserves and blue print sketch.   The stamp that I used is from Fiskars I believe? - Daisy's.

        I popped a 2" circle and stamped the sentiment with Black StazOn and brushed the edge with Peacock Feathers.  I used blue glitter dots and paper flowers to make it festive.  All of that mounted on a black CS base that has an edge of washi tape along the side to tie in with the sketch challenge.
      I mounted it on white CS and ran some faux stitching around the edge.
I would like to add this to the following challenges if I may ....
