Color Challenge #10

I feel like I've hit a milestone! Ten color challenges.... that means I've been doing this for 2 1/2 months. It doesn't feel like I've been doing them that long, but I guess I have! This week's challenge is very green in celebration of St. Patty's Day!

Kiwi
Buttercup
Citrus Leaf
Topiary

Sue's Frog Card
Sparkle's Hanna Card
Jenn's Wish Card
Y.Poulsen's Swamp Exhibit Layout

My Sample :



Stamps : For Every Occassion, Friendship Blessings, Fairy Dust

Accents : Rhinestones, Prisma Glitter

Wow how long has it been since a made a card?! I had to check the date on my last card post. It was 22 days ago! I can hardly believe the last card I made was three weeks ago, lol. This card was inspired by a site that Kathi had a link to. The blog is called Freedom In Creating and her style is awesome and very artistic (like a painting!). She's AMAZING with the brayer and it was her cards that inspired me to do this one. I actually used my brayer that I bought months ago and hadn't touched. I'm really kind of a scaredy cat when it comes to trying new techniques though I know there's nothing to be afraid of. It's art, I should be fearless!! But no, it takes me forever to try out new techniques. So I got out my brayer and brayered the top half of my col white CS with buttercup, then the bottom half with kiwi. I sponged citrus leaf along the branch, on the leaves, and around the entire base. Terrifying, isn't it. ^_~ The fairy was stamped in Citrus Leaf and colored in with pencils just a little so that she didn't feel so flat. I glittered her wings and her sparkles. A simple and quick card but I think it came out rather pretty.
