OSAAT #153 - Green or Recycle

No recycling for me I'm afraid on this one - I took the opportunity of using my favourite colour again, GREEN! Yes, that's the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time, Green or Recycle. Come along and join us, we'd love to see you.

The image, Birds in a Tree, is by Claire of Hope Jacare over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store.

The sponsor is Stitchybear so come across to the challenge blog and check out the prizes.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers, using a black Sakura pen for some of the colour on the birds. I carefully cut round the image so that it would stand out on the dark green background. The dark green Papermill card was matted on to a lighter green card, Papermill again, before being affixed to the Joanna Sheen card blank. I used the same lighter green card to cut the Spellbinder leaf flourishes.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Favourite Colour
