Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #359


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Touchy Feely Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

A Bit O' Green

 We are using Clearly Besotted products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)
For my GREEN card, I used Miniature Floral II to stamp my design. 


After gold embossing and fussy cutting, I colored the images lightly with Spectrum Aqua Markers. Although it is a lot more work to fussy cut the embossed design, the result does pay off.  I used just two floral stamps for this design.
just a note

The delicate flowers, leaves, stems and branch really come through with the fussy cutting.
 To go with the theme, I used predominately green for this card. I love "movement" in my designs and it seems that splattering can give this kind of effect. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
