I was working on this challenge this past weekend after it had occurred to me that I had a lot of Easter cards to make. Although the image on this challenge didn't say "Easter" to me - I knew the word "green" would work. New growth, new life - all perfect for Easter. Then I found a palm die that I had forgotten I had and I knew it was meant to be!
Things took a bit of a left turn at that point. I planned on a green palm. I didn't want a solid palm - so I tried brushing on various greens, sponging greens and I almost broke out the watercolors when I realized that my problem was that my greens were just too heavy for the card. I wanted a light and airy card. So I cut the palm out of white and brushed some limeade on the background. It ended up not fully representative of the word "green" but I was definitely inspired by it!!
I hope to see you playing along with the "green" challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!
