Today’s card is in response to the current CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge – simply to make a card in shades of green. Here’s the challenge banner:
This is where Stampin’ Up! provides an advantage – there are lots of greens in the current colour families! I pulled out six or seven (seriously) and narrowed my selection down to three : Always Artichoke (a grey-green), Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.
After messing around with a few other stampsets, I settled on one of my current favourites – Sheltering Tree. Here’s my card:
The base is Always Artichoke with a mat of Old Olive. I stamped the images on the more cream white, Very Vanilla. I stamped the tree structure in Always Artichoke and added the leaves in Old Olive. I stamped additional leaves (stamping off once) in Pear Pizzazz. The grass is Old Olive and the sentiment is in Always Artichoke – hope you like it! I do.
