Words in green ....

... it's ridiculously late, but I just can't get to sleep!!  So rather than toss and turn, I've been playing in my craft room.  This little card is for the CAS-ual Fridays - CFC21 challenge - where the team would like us to "create a clean and simple project using at least 3 shades of a monochromatic colour (our choice) PLUS brown", and it's also for the One Layer Wednesday - OLW65 - challenge - sentiment-a-mania.  Jennifer want us to make sure the sentiment is the main focus of the card.


Some while ago I bought some alphabet stamps (see example at foot of post) produced by Hero Arts.  Each set has a large capital letter and lots of little stamps - words and images.  For this card I selected a number of boxed verses - generally related to enjoyment, laughter and fun.  I stamped each one in a different shade of green, cut them out and mounted them onto some brown card.  For the final square I stamped a paisley swirl in Versamark and embossed it with clear powder.  It's a small card - 4" × 4" - but sweet.  I think it would make a nice set of cards in other colours.


Stamps: Hero Arts - Clear Design Alphabet Sets - Letters: A, G, L and R
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive
Accessories:  Card from stash

Sorry about the quality of the picture - I've had to scan the card.  The picture below shows all the stamps that you get in the "L" set.  I've used them quite a lot this year - which is good!


Anyway, it's now 1.45am and well past bed time, so I'm going to say good night and hopefully I'll get off soon.  See you later today :)

I'm not sure I got this challenge right!

i like the writings but there is lack of design and the background is simple. it would be so attractive if you added more design at it.
