Happy 1st! Can’t believe we are looking at March already. Today, I have an exciting news to share – I am joining Sparkle & Shine Challenge team for 2015.

I wanted to play with some green shades for my card’s background. (Can we say 50 shades of green? lol) So above is what I came up with – leaving the rest of the card white and clean totally helps the focal point to pop.

To create the green focal background, I stamped Hero Arts Hexagon Background Stamp Set onto a Distress Watercolor Paper and heat set it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine Embossing Power. After that, I added different green watercolor shades from the Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set and let it dry.

I cutout the watercolor piece using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangular Large Die. I love the stitched line around the edges that gives a defined look.

For sentiments I stamped “celebrate” from Altenew’s Label Love Stamp Set with My Favorite Thing’s Timber Green. To dress up the card, I used Pretty Pink Posh’s Mossy Green, Fresh Mint, and Marshmallow.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and hope you will make a card and join us for our challenge!
