Going Green!

This week's CD Sunday challenge is "Going Green" - the colour or the environmental aspect or both. So I thought that as well as using the colour green, I would try to use something I had previously printed out for a different project, saving the paper, ink and power needed to print new papers.

This green brocade paper and the greeting are left over from papers I printed off from Debbie Moore's Glitter and Glitz Art Deco Story Boxes CD. The fan is made using a Keepsake embossing board - I cut two shapes, leaving one without the inner embossed details, and hinged the two together with a folded piece of matching card. The flower and leaf die cuts are from a Kanban set several years old.

Isn't gold card hard to photograph, especially on a gloomy day like today when it isn't possible to switch the flash off and use the natural light streaming in through the window! I'm afraid these photos are the best of a very bad bunch!

  1. Hi Jane, your design is fabulous and well done for using Green as a colour and also recycling. The papers are super and I love the embellishment in the centre. Thanks for joining us again this week.

  2. Jane you've done a great job with the theme this week, you've got all angles covered with this one. I know what you mean about gold being a bit difficult to photograph when the weather isn't the best, I just use my daylight lamp and pop the cards underneath.

    1. Now I'm wondering if I could use my husband's daylight simulating plant propagator, that would give lovely even daylight!

  7. A brilliant take on the challenge Jane, Love the shape. When photographing gold or any mirri card I usually end up photographing myself in it. Looks like I need a daylight bulb too.

  8. Hi Jane. I am still chuckling imagining you creeping out to use the propagator. Don't get earth on your card.
