The Card Concept



I'm going with a CAS style for The Card Concept Challenge. With green being my favorite color, I'm always happy to see March arrive! :-)  I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks to do a watercolor background.  I die cut two of the Boddington Tree Border (gorgeous border by Poppystamps) to add more dimension.  I stamped the sentiment twice using a MISTI to get perfect positioning for the repeated stamping.  I thought a tiny black and white border design (paper by Recollections) would add more visual interest - prompted by a wee bit of smudging at the edge of the watercolor paper - lol!  Don't you love how mistakes can often end up being a blessing in disguise?!

STAMPS: Painted Greetings by Altenew.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
