Tonight, I'm joining the ladies from the Art With Heart Team for this week's Colour Creations Showcase. This week we're featuring Granny Apple Green which is from the Brights Collection.
This turned out to be a rather unexpected colour combination, but somehow I think it works.
I've kept my card simple, using my favourite Wreath Builder Dies to create a multi-layered wreath in Vellum, Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce. I layered them onto a piece of Pool Party card stock that was dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then added to a Granny Apple Green mat and onto a Whisper White card base.
To embellish the wreath, I have die cut 'peace' with the Joy Dies in Thick Whisper White and Gold Foil and adhered them together, offsetting the Gold Foil to create a shadow and make it a little more robust. The peace dove from the Dove of Hope stamp set was heat embossed in Gold and then fussy cut; there is a die to crop it, but I wanted to have it without a border. Although it isn't visible in the photo, I sprayed the dove with Champagne Shimmer Mist (Champagne Shimmer Paint in rubbing alcohol) for some sparkle and popped it up so that the wings are very dimensional. The coordinating 'on earth' greeting was heat embossed in gold and then fussy cut and popped up.
For the inside, I have a Pool Party mat for my writing panel and I have stamped the lovely greeting from the Dove of Hope stamp set in the centre with Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce. At the base is a strip of designer paper from the Forever Greenery pack which is very close to Granny Apple Green and has Shaded Spruce speckles. I had an extra dove, so I popped it in the corner to finish.
