It’s time for a new challenge at Anything but a card blog: Green, isn’t that the most beautiful colour of the spring. After the long winter that we could see only white, or grey it is a great pleasure to the eye to discover some other shades. Nature is dressing in different tints of greens, exactly like trees, flowers and the grass would envy the colour from each other. So for a warm welcome of the spring I created this home decor piece.
I used a wooden flower shape that first I covers with a layer of gesso, then I sanded it.
Then using France’s Romantic text from Stampotique I added some texture with archival ink.
I wanted some dimensional texture as well, so I used texture paste. Then I coloured it to green.
I cut a heart shape and painted to light green. On a scrap paper I stamped “green” and distressed the edges. I added a four-leaf clover embellishment to my heart.
I layered a piece of paper dolly, some thread and cambric under my heart.
I wanted to add some flowers, these ones I coloured with purple lake and light green for a distressed effect. I used a stick of cinnamon for some smell.
Finally I found a green butterfly, butterflies give me the feeling of transformation of the nature after winter going into spring.
So how do you like the green shades of spring?
Here are some details for you:
