3 shades of Green

Are you enjoying the Spring holiday, two more days of R&R here in the UK.   Time to catch up some more on commitments and have a little play.   Oh yes and cut the green stuff!

This week the Less is More challenge is Three Shades of Green.   Could not resist could I?    Made a mask of 3 inchie squares coloured through with those fantastic brushes and three shades of Green DI.   The stamp is a HOTP cover stamp from a magazine recently stamped in Brilliance Lightening Black.   And that is all there is to it.

The stamp was chosen wtih Stamp Scrap and Doodle in mind and their challenge of things with wings.

  9. Gorgeous Zoe - I love the stamping over the squares - so clean and simple but so effective.
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my card - do try the inlaid technique - if you use ready sticky paper (I used DCVW sticky strips) then it's actually quite easy :-)
