Believe .........





Love 'Shades of Green' as a colourway for fresh looking cards so I decided to make this fantasy card featuring these colours.  The contrast of black against the colours really makes the main image pop !

I started with a white card blank with a top easel fold.  I then cut a matt out of lime green card and layered this onto the card front. I cut another smaller matt from white card and coloured this with Adirondack dye inks on cut'n'dry foam through a butterfly stencil, layering with various shades of green.





I selected a Lindsey Mason silhouette acrylic stamp, inked in Versafine onyx black ink and stamped directly onto the stencilled matt.  The matt was then stuck in place on the card front.

I stamped the sentiment onto more lime green card in Versafine onyx black and trimmed this out before matting onto white card, trimming again and sticking in place.





I then adhered some green acrylic gems onto the card front to finish.  I like the clean lines set off with some bling on the finished card.  Hope you do too !  This card meets the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge for March whose theme is 'Anything Goes'.
