We are here for another
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!
Luv my Wednesdays!!! As I post this, it's perfect for today-St. Patrick's Day! We're "wearing'" green here on this hop!!!
You may be here from Helen's blog! Glad you hopped along!!! Now keep hopping & head over to Liz's blog!!! Then keep going until you're right back here!! Enjoy along the way!!!
Here's my "green" creation this week:
Here's the inspiration:
Here are the Stampin' Up! colors in MDS:
So the minute I saw these colors I thought grass! Of course I haven't seen any in months, but I think it's still under all that white stuff! And grass makes me think "spring"!!! Oh please let it get here sometime soon!!! It's just so cold & ugly still! Well maybe this hop will help bring on the spring!
I thought for "green" the Sheltering Tree stamp set would work well. This did not come out at all the way I thought it would look, but I love it! Could be a masculine card, but really it's for anyone. I just love that tree. It's often used in a sort of "whimsical" way, but I like the softness & rustic nature of it here. The little frame is made with the Square Framelits & the
Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
The leaves are stamped once with the Mossy Meadow ink, then they are embossed with the Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder. I would have loved to add a bit of darker blue for the sky, but had to stick with the theme. That's one reason I love these challenges-they make you have to think outside of the box! I love that!!
So hope you enjoyed the hop this week! Oh, and Happy St. Patrick's Day a day a wee bit late!!!
