Going Green

Don't look at the bottom right hand corner of this card! Why? Because it wasn't until I'd finished making it that I realised my masking tape had slipped, so the border isn't dead straight.

OK *sigh* you've all looked at  it now, haven't you? So I've got that out of the way. I masked off the edges of my card and then sponged over it various shades of green from the Kaleidacolour Fresh Greens pad, keeping the darker colours towards the corner and fading away to the lighter ones. Then I overstamped the shading with ferns and foliage in various shades of green, using stamps from an old Graphicus set, plus one small fern polymer stamp that I think had been a magazine freebie (and disintegrated when I took it off the acrylic block!), using the hedge-parsley plant from the set as a focal point by stamping it in black.

The sentiment was a magazine freebie and is currently my favourite sentiment stamp, as regular readers have probably gathered!

I'm sharing this with

Another lovely card - I've got that stamp too (I think we must buy the same magazines) and love how it stamps.

This is gorgeous. I love green and your card has lots of it. I wouldn't have noticed the corner as your card is really striking. I also have this sentiment. Hehe - we all get the same mags! Barbxx

Just beautiful, Jane. Fabulous design, despite the border not being straight....which I didn't even notice until you mentioned it! ;-)

It's a fabulously gorgeous card! Personally I love the asymmetric look on cards ;-) so your happy accident works out perfectly!
Ha ha.. Had a few disintegrating stamps myself.
The shades of green you used are just glorious.
