Shades of green

Less is more 62 calls for a one layer card using three shades of green - I hope I'm forgiven because I've actually used five different greens.

I followed the sketch for Clean & simple 184:



I usied the flower stamp that came free with the May issue of Craft Stamper that I bought in WHS earlier today, inking it with Brilliance pearlescent jade. I then masked off the flower and used three different HOTP stitching stamps and a leafy one which is part of a V & A set, finishing off with a 'just for you' sentiment stamp by Crafters companion. The stitched stamps were inked with Brilliance pearlescent lime, pearlescent ivy and Stazon teal blue and the V & A leafy stamp inked with Stazon cactus green.
