Going Green!

Hello everyone! I have a card to show you today. I saw Joy Taylor’s card over at CASE Study and I so inspired! 100_7575[1]

160620121269c

I used the die cut element on her card and used that as a focal point of my card. I added four shades of green water colours. After the paint was dry, I went in and added fluorescent yellow and green with Crayola markers.

160620121276

I didn’t want to use a plain green base so I went ahead and water coloured the background with the brightest and lightest green I had and while it was still semi wet, I drew horizontal lines with various greens of Crayola markers. As most of you know that Crayola’s are washable markers and because I used them on semi wet CS, the colours started to merge together reducing the harshness of the lines.

160620121278This is my first time participating in the Hero Arts challenge. I know I wont be getting anywhere with just a sentiment stamp but this is what I have.

Hope you guys like my card and the lines thingy! Leave a comment and I will stop by your blog for sure. One request, please turn off word verification! The new word verification sucks big time, I can’t read it!! I get it wrong ALWAYS!
