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.

Seize the cupcake

This card is for the sketch for Annabelle 48:

and for the colours for Daring cardmakers colour combo for April:

All papers used were from my offcuts box (background is WeRMemory Keepers, the flowery paper is DCWV and the nestie cut spiky circle is Basic Grey cupcake) so this is also for Pixie's crafty snippets 15.

The cupcake stamp is a Dawn Bibby Kanban one coloured with copics. This is for Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday 'seize the cupcake' challenge.
