Even though we have had snow this week, spring is defiantly on it's way. Evey where I look there are shades of green as new shoots start sprouting.
I went over to the Less Is More web site and the challenge for this week is ...... Three Shades of Green.
Well by chance I had made this card last night that didn't quite fit the bill....
So I remade it.....
Here is what I did.
Using a Crafters Workshop 6x6 Mini Harlequin template I covered a portion of my card with the template and sponged Vaseline into all the open spaces.
Really rub the Vaseline into the card you don't want any clumps of it any where. If you have, you have applied too much. You need to treat it as if it is an ink.
I then removed the stencil and then sponged green Memento ( Bamboo Leaves ) over the area again, making sure not to get in on the portion of the card I wanted to stay white.
Using the Bamboo Leaves I coloured a 1cm strip of card and then made a faux bow and then stamped the greeting in the same ink.
I know I have only used one colour ink but I have managed to get three shades from it.
For the first card I used Ribbon to trim the card and stamped the greeting in brown.
I like using Vaseline as a resist, you get a nice distressed look.
Well I hope you like my entry. Thank you for dropping by. Hope to see you again soon with another card.
