~LIM Green~


Chrissie and Mandi are so kind to give us a color to work with for Christmas.

Even though I have quite a few cards made...I didn't think about the "mailable" aspect and thought a few simple cards would be easier to send out.

My image is a second-hand PSX evergreen which I stamped in Versamark and embossed in white. 

I got around the masking technique, by inking in black and stamping off once before stamping over the white trees.

I took a baby wipe and wiped off ink that got on the white embossed areas. 

I kind of like the smeary look.

See my homemade Washi tape?

I know a pattern would be more "washi"ish...but I wanted the sentiment to almost float without disrupting the design.

I love the sheerness of the sentiment.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by. ;)

It's a great idea to have chopped up the image Marlena... it adds another dimension!
Super stuff.

I love your chopped scene. What a super effect you've created. x

Love the shade of green you used Marlena and how you sliced the picture up, gives it quite a modern feel :)

And I thought that I would be using the original curves of the lines in his piece, and you ubiegłaś me. Beautifully done this card. Congratulations.
