Color Dare #394 - Monochromatic "Greens"

Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca!

If you've visited my blog before you know I love doing Color Dares! Let's pull out our greens and join in on this one...

If you would like to read the rules, see other entries, or join the fun here is the link → Color My Heart Color Dare #394 - Monochromatic "Greens".

To start with I pulled out my favorite three green inks: Willow, Clover, and Evergreen. I also pulled together some White Daisy Cardstock and a sponge dauber.

Then I got busy blending some ink...

While that background ink dried I started to work on my hummingbird. I used my new Sweet Hummingbird Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3725) for this card design.

First I stamped the hummingbird in black and then I "watercolored" him in using my green inks and a  small round waterbrush. This is so fun to do!

While the hummingbird dried I attached the my green blended piece (trimmed to 3.75" x 5") to a piece of black cardstock (trimmed to 4" x 5.25") using Tombow Permanent Adhesive. I then attached the black/green blended piece to the card base using 3-D Foam Tape.

All that was left to do was add my hummingbird, my sentiment, and a few white sequins out of the Crafty Loose Sequins collection. This was a fun card to make and I hope it will brighten somebody's day!
