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!

Citrus Leaf

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.
