With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, the CTD gals are smilin' with Irish eyes this week...take a look at the color palette we got to work with:
Green and eggplant....hmmmm....I thought about it for awhile and decided to play some more with my beloved Waterfront stamp set and create a "purple mountains majesty" card!
To create the mountains I used a lighter shade of eggplant--Wisteria Wonder--and stamped in from each side at full strength and after stamping off once. I made a base for the treeline by using just the edge of one of the line stamps in Tranquil Tide ink. The trees were also stamped in Tranquil Tide. I used one of the abstract stamp images to create the grassy meadows beneath the mountains by stamping off twice with Tranquil Tide ink. I have a set of hillside border dies--not sure which company they are from--that I used to create the slightly torn edge. I just held the die on my cardstock and tore off the edge to reveal the sentiment stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink. The flock of birds flying over the mountains are from the High Tide stamp set and are stamped in Elegant Eggplant to coordinate with the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the gorgeous samples at Color Throwdown--these ladies always delight with their creativity! Big thanks to the team for choosing my tulip card and inviting me aboard this week. Enjoy the rest of your week, friends!
