Going Green

No, not a new environmental initiative on my part, just time for some green colour crafting. This beautiful digistamp from Sandra Dry keeps calling to me. I tried a bright colour combination previously and now thought I would try a green/lime green/black combination as I was inspired by the striped paper.

But I had a complete disaster, I smudged the base card because I tried to stick on the paper lace before it had dried (I coloured it with a black ink pad). OK, it wasn't a complete disaster but the small smudge kept glaring out at me so I decided to remake the card. I reprinted the green striped digi paper with a startling improvement in the results. This was all due to the new gentle gloss paper I bought from Joanna Sheen. The greens were so much brighter and the black was actually black instead of dark blue. The ink was also dry instantly.

I am entering the card in the Lace Challenge (#53) at A Spoon Full Of Sugar.

This card has turned out it in this colour...amazing how an image looks so different with a colour change.
Digi stamps are great for boys cards...have a look at Charmed Cards and Crafts...they have some great ones.
Let me know how you get on with your new pens...sound fab.
