Over Hump Day Blog Candy Give Away: Greens and Yellows

Hi All,

Thanks for joining me today. I have a card to share with you, participating in the OHDBCGA for this month (3rd Saturday of every month) .  I have used the Bunny Car image by InStyle Stamps in honour of Easter (once again)!
The challenge this month is to use green an yellow...

OK, so I was thinking St. Patrick's Day, right?  Well how about I really challenge myself, and NOT do a St. Patrick's Day card?  So, here it is...

I started out with a Whisper White card base.  There is a large rectangle panel with some bright green CS (from Michael's), and a Whisper White piece embossed with my Cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder.  I added some paper piercing around that, and some Certainly Celery Poly Twill ribbon around the bottom of that panel.

For the main panel, it is the same green CS, then a Whisper White piece.  The top piece is So Saffron, sponged with So Saffron ink, then Certainly Celery ink, then Glorious Green ink for a gradiated effect.  After the sponging, I embossed that layer with the houndstooth folder, and added paper piercing around the edges. 

I printed the image onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured it with my Copics, and cut it out.  I also added some Yellow Shimmerz to the stripes and some Atyou Spica Glitter Pen to the middles of the flowers for some shine and sparkle.
That bunny looks like he's having a pretty great time in that egg car - I can feel the wind in his ears!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
