Green


Ok that blue colour is suppose to be more Green since the colour pencils and card I used were Aquamarine. I have used three other green pencils on the leaves and the distress inkpads were Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint. So hopefully I'm forgiven for my blue aquamarine and this is my entry to Less is More this week.
The stamp came from a large unmounted set that has poppies and germaniums on. I thought it would be a quick card but in the end there was quite a lot of cutting out. I do love how the leaves hang over the ribbon and of course I used a flatten bow but I'm not convinced its flat enough to go through normal post.

I do hope everyone going to Ally Pally this weekend have a great time but we've decided not to go.
It been quite a stressful time especially for Sister and we're going to a crop on Sunday. Saturdays at Ally Pally is no fun for me in a wheelchair and with a trolley ban there will be a lot of rucksacks trying to knock my head off!
And there will be times I just can't get near the stalls which is why I love going on Sundays much more relaxing and you get to actually enjoy shopping.

Oh wow - I've got that stamp and have never managed to make it look as good as this. Your colouring is amazing and how you had the patience (and the dexterity) to cut it out is beyond me. My niece wanted me to go to Ally Pally with her this time as we haven't been for a while now but too much going on here at the moment to leave the place a while (as I'd have to stay at her place). Maybe next time.

Striking Debby & I too love the way those leaves hang over the ribbon. I've had my eye on this Chocolate Baroque Set for some time but it's still not managed to come & live with me. I particularly like the way you've shaded the background with the Distress Inks.
Hope you have a relaxing time with your sister on Sunday. Wise decision about AP I think - I'm short so rucksacks are dire!

Theresa said...

Debby - this is stunning. I love the script behind the flowers. I still want to know how you make these images stand out and look 3D.
It's so beautiful.

What's sad is that the ladies at Less Is More will tell you it's beautiful, but that they want more white space. I don't think they really know what CAS really is.

Absolutely gorgeous card!!

Sonia said...

It's so sweet this card:compliments it's very beautiful,I love flowers.

A fantastically gorgeous card. Its a shame about Ally Pally, I don't go either, would be way to hectic for me as an M.E. sufferer. My freinds are there today and I so wish I could go but hey ho, its just not doable. I am going to craft instead and check out my blog buddies xx
