The Card Concept - Monochromatic Green

Hi There-

Green...huh.  I am not a green fan despite my love of flowers.  Though I have to say a lot of green makes its way onto my cards.

Here are lots of greens in the inspiration photo for  The Card Concept # 88.

I was taken with the gold accents to the various greens.  My card is kind of clean an layered.

So I gold embossed the SSS Cora Background stamp with Hero Arts gold ep. I used a Clarity stencil brush to add the HA Lime Green ink.  I die cut the bottom with PPP's scalloped borders 2 and mounted it to a SSS Green Leaf cardbase.  The sentiment is from MFT - More Essential Sentiments. And since the gold wasn't enough there is bit of green glitter paper under the sentiment. 

And  of course this will be submitted to Simon's Work it Wednesday - Green.

This one is for a friend whose favorite color is green and she's Irish.  I thought the hearts and the pattern were vaguely reminiscent of a Claddagh.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This looks awesome! I’m not a big green fan either and I had to make a Shades of Green card this last week... I’m still not a green fan but I do enjoy a challenge. I totally forgot about the work it Wednesday at SSS. Thanks for reminding me!! Does it have to be mostly SSS products though? I made a green card but it’s mostly POD but the sentiment is from SSS. I wonder if I could still enter it...

Absolutely stunning, Cat! Green isn't one of the colors I consider a favorite, but now I'm rethinking that!
