Spring green

Still in a spring mood, this card is for the Cuttlebug Be Inspired 22 challenge 'Your Challenge this week is to use Glitter with a stamping image and off course Cuttlebug :)'

I used the double embossing technique that you can find on the Cuttlebug blog -Joy suggested running the embossing folder through to emboss and deboss the same piece of card - I did this and then swiped ink pads gently over the area. The Happy Birthday is inked and the Whispers ivy stamped with Brilliance pearlescent ivy (couldn't be better) and softly coloured with a water brush with the ink pad and then topped the veins with stickles, mounted on to an small HOTP offcut (still trying to use up offcuts rather than cut into fresh papers).

This is also good for a couple of stamping challenges this week that call for something green: Wednesday Stamper and Stamp Something.
