March 2020 KBH Theme: Color Challenge - Green Monochromatic...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Kre8tors Blog Hop for March!  You may have joined me from Janey or starting your journey here.

We have a bumper hop this month and have been set a real challenge to create a monochromatic project choosing from a selection of the amazing greens we have.  I didn't realise just how many greens there are!  Here is the selection from what we had to choose.

I must confess I struggled a little to get my head around using just greens and I had a few failed attempts along the way.  I finally settled on using Granny Apple Green (my favourite!), Call Me Clover, Garden Green and Shaded Spruce.  Here is my card.

I started by creating a background by sponging the four colours on to a piece of Whisper White card.  I sprinkled some water over the top to add some splodge marks.  Finally, I splattered some Frost White Shimmer Paint to the background.  I heated the shimmer paint which causes it to bubble and gives a nice textured effect.

I then mounted the background on to a piece of Whisper White before adhering to my black card front.

For the leaves, I heat embossed the leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set using White Embossing Powder before sponging over the top in a mixture of the four greens and cutting them out.

I stamped the greeting and embossed in white on black card before cutting out.

I put my elements together on my card and added some linen thread.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project and I am now going to pass you on to Annette.

Thank you for hopping by.

Happy Stampin'
