I have to say I was really excited to give this challenge a try. Typically I would never think to layer a card with “3” different types of green. However, it works!!!
To create this card I started with a 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ base. Next I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock. I used (My Favorite) the square Lattice Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot. Then I pulled out the refills for Old Olive, Always Artichoke, and Pear Pizzazz. I dropped three or four drops of each color in a little bowl. Note: I did space my drops out so they don’t all mix and become one shade of green. Next, I grabbed a sponge and dabbed it in the different greens and begun to sponge/color the Whisper White Textured Card Stock.
I really like color challenges because it forces you to look at stamps and colors to determine how you can best use the colors and make them pop. This is a really great stamp or small Ornate Blossom. This stamp is from the Stampin Up Friends Never Fade Stamp Set. To color it I used an Always Artichoke Stampin Write Marker for the bottom half. The middle portion was an Old Olive Stampin Write Marker and the top of course was Pear Pizzazz. Lastly, I cut a 5-1/4″ x 3/4″ Basic Black Strip. I used the two Old Olive Brads for added embellishment.
