Inky Impressions Challenges No. 31

It is a colour challenge for the Inky Impressions Challenges this fortnight:

Think Green

All you need to do is add green somewhere in your make. I’ve used the Amy Butler papers from K&Co with the lovely lime greens.

The image is the cute Lili’s Cleaning Day from Inky Impressions and I have coloured her with PrismaColor Pencils.

The heart embellishment is made from painted corrugated cardboard and I’ve layered it up with some netting, fabric and Hessian with a button and paper beads to finish it.

Have fun with your green makes.


Edit: The lovely Shirley has done it again and pointed out that this card fits the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday which this week has a Lucky Green theme. Thanks Shirley!
