A couple of months ago I challenged the members of my card guild to create something using vegetables as the inspiration. I decided to create a card and use this as a color inspiration. I chose an avocado and it's shades of green.
This is a layout design that I like and use often. I decided to have a little fun with the background layer. I took a lighter piece of green cardstock and used the numbers cuttlebug folder on it to emboss it. I then painted the entire thing with a darker green. Once dry, I took a piece of sandpaper and rubbed off some of the paint to reveal the lighter green below.
I love using paint but usually just dry brush some on. This time I went with fuller coverage and then removal of some color. It's a totally different look but lots of fun in a slightly distressed way.
I am finally almost done with my moving announcements - phew. But I can't seem to find all my A7 envelopes from the move - oops - quick trip for some envies for me!
Have a great day!
