Three Greens

Hello all, hope you're not feeling too sick after all your Easter eggs!!! I'm saving my egg for a rainy day..............which as it happens is today.Yaaaaaaaaay!!

Today, I've made a card for the Less is More challenge where Chrissie and Mandie want to see a project using     THREE SHADES of GREEN

I made this Pear Spotlight card, what do you think?




Choosing 3 greens was harder than I first thought as I have so many SU favourites, but in the end I decided on the ones that made the most of the coloured spotlight area. Using dark green I stamped the pears and leaves using the masking technique onto some white card, and then put it through the Big Shot with a label, and circle nestabilitie to cut the centre of the design out. I then used another green to colour all the pears in, but did a second coat of the two foreground pears to make them slightly darker ( so that's two greens), and then lastly, I coloured the leaf, the larger circle of card, and the larger label to mat and layer the design on. This was then placed on 3D pads onto a card stamped with the darker green sentiment.

Recipe :
Card = White card stock from my stash
Stamps = All Natural and Basic Phrases
Inks = Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, and Lucky Limeade Write markers
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig, Post Its, Big Shot and Labels and circle nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads

 
Now the rain has stopped I really must go and mow my lawns, hope to be back soon.

Thanks for dropping by
