To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the designers at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration were challenged to create a card using 3 shades of green. Just so you know, that's not as easy as it sounds. It's not easy being green!
I chose 3 In Colors for my shades of green: Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush, and Mossy Meadow. The little frog image is from the You're Sublime stamp set and my perfect sentiment is from the Greatest Greetings stamp set.
I created a small watercolor background using an Aqua Painter and Mint Macaron ink. Next, I stamped the frog image onto the Cucumber Crush patterned paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper stack, and a second time onto Whisper White card stock. I cut the green image out, and the eyes/spots from the Whisper White to create the full frog. The eyes were popped up with dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink to round out my 3rd shade of green. I added a few of the It's My Party enamel dots and a strip of the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper to complete the card.
I hope you have an enjoyable and lucky St. Patrick's Day.
Thanks for stopping by!
