WWC59 - Bev's Colour Challenge

It's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and this time Bev has provided us with a colour challenge.  But this is no ordinary colour challenge.  This colour challenge is all about the greens.

At first glance I thought "what am I going to do with all those greens!"  My normal inclination would have been to have lots of flowers but with nothing except for greens in the palette, that wasn't going to happen.  And then I remembered that the day after the challenge opens will be St. Patrick's Day.  Who needs flowers?  St. Patrick's Day is all about the foliage.

I began with a card base of Heavy Whisper White followed by a layer of Mossy Meadow.  Then I took a piece of Whisper White and proceeded to stamp all over it with the various greens in this challenge, using images from the Timeless Textures, By the Tide and Awesomely Artistic.  After stamping, I embossed the piece using the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

For The smaller rectangle I used a backing of Crisp Cucumber embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder and rounded the corners using the Project Life Corner punch.  On a smaller piece of Whisper White I first stamped the foliage from the Awesomely Artistic set using Mint Macaron, off-stamped twice.  Then I used the heart from the Work of Art stamp set to stamp the shamrock using Crisp Cucumber ink.  Before attached the smaller rectangle to the card with Dimensionals, I added a piece of Crisp Cucumber Dotted Lace Trim with another piece of the Lace Trim in Mint Macaron knotted around it.

I hope you'll check out the rest of the Watercooler Artists' creations at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  With all that inspiration, I trust you'll link up your own card and join the challenge.
