Peaceful Green

Hello Everyone!!  Today I got to play in two challenges - Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (don't you love this sketch.....might even make another one yet!!  ;) ) and The Shabby Tea Room Challenge to either use green or be inspired by nature......obviously I chose the 'green' option!!  :)

I started with a base of dark green bazzill and layered with white and some Memory Box Frond DP which I sewed around the edge.  For the vertical panel I stamped Brocade Background in ODBD Olive ink on white and matted with more dark green punched with the Arch Lattice border punch.  Over this I attached some white grosgrain ribbon.  The circle was made by using the largest two circle nestabilities and then I accented with some white pearls.  I then stamped the Brocade Borders and sentiment from Peace in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured the frame with Copics (G20, G21, G24) and matted with more dark green and popped it up on foam tape.  I finished by adding a white bow made with my Bow Easy to the top corner.

Stamps - Peace, Brocade Borders, Brocade Background (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Dark Green Bazzill, White, Memory Box Frond DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, ODBD Olive
Accessories - Copics, Large Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Punch, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Bow Easy, Sewing Machine, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, X-press It Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
