Another Green Snowdrop
Yesterday when I was deciding what to do for the Feeling Green challenge card I stamped the same Elusive Images Snowdrop Script stamp onto some green card, then using stipple brush added some ink to adjust the colour of the card to a more yellowy green. I painted the image with Twinkling H2Os again - and yes Jo, incase you didn't see my reply to your comment in yesterday's blog post the white paint is an H2O. It's the colour called Oyster from kit #655 and the only one in that kit that does not have an inteference colour.
Today I edged my stamped image with some green ink and dipped it into some of the pearl Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder (Tropic Pearl Lustre) and heat set it. I made a matting layer from some ivory pearlescent card and stamped a border of little snowdrop flower heads using green ink and embossed these with more of the Cosmic Shimmer EP. The little Snowdrop flower head image is from the same Themeplate as the main image.
The main card is some ivory hammer card and I have used one of the paper designs from the Artylicious Damask Delights CD as a background on it. The paper was edged with some green ink and overstamped at the bottom corner with a large flourish stamp that comes from Creative Expressions and was designed by Sheena Douglas. The flourish is also embossed with the Cosmic Shimmer EP, but it was hard to catch the shimmer in the photo.
Glad I was still in Green mode today because I can include this card in the Anything Goes Challenge on Craft Swap Forum where the current theme is "Green"
