Green is Lucky


THIS IS MY 2ND POST TODAY SO BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN!

When I saw today's Limited Supplies challenge for green, this stamp set from Treehouse Stamps immediately came to mind. I'll be getting a bonus point too because I used DP on his jacket and pants! I used a sketch I found over on The Daily Dare from Friday's Sketchers.

My clouds & clover weren't showing up well enough so I used the old trick I often use on silhouettes to add white to the right side and a darker color to the left. When I paperpiece the DP, you know I can't just glue it on there! I had to add some shadows with my copics. This card is only two layers - the card base and the image. The green you see showing around the main image square is the card base.

Stamps: Treehouse Stamps Lucky Charm
Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, SU Old Olive DP
Ink: Baja Breeze, Soft Sky, Old Olive, Garden Green, Always Artichoke, Blue Bayou, Whisper White
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, fine black marker, white gel pen


Enjoy!
