GOING GREEN - WATERCOLOR

Hello!! I hope this finds you well rested from a wonderful weekend! 

Have you been over to The Brakefast Club? The Brakefast Club is a free forum filled with friendship, Inspiration, Challenges , Fun, Contests, and ideas for I Brake For Stamps! This weeks challenge was to create something with GREEN!

Todays card, I decided to try something and didn't get the colors I wanted, so I did some punting and came up with this creation.

I started out by using Creative Inspiration Paints and the Spring Green paint on my water color card stock. I did not achieve the Bright Green I wanted, so I grabbed my water color crayons and mixed some Glorious Green in and WAH-LAH! I achieve the glorious, shimmery green I wanted!!!

I used both water color crayons and Creative Inspiration Paints: Emerald, Copper, Antique Silver, Charcoal, Spring Green, Citrus, Onyx, Coal, Butter Cup, Raw Sienna

I Brake for Stamps now carries these wonderful paints too!


 I also had fun using Paper Temptress Paper SO FUN!!! - Here are the gorgeous papers I used Water color Paper,  Paper, POP Tones - Berrylicious,   Antique Parchment brownMetallics Fairway - Each of these papers has their own unique quality - each embosses beautifully and really help add the extra WOW to create a fabulous card!


Here are a few more details:
Stamps: Leprechaun, Clovers, Irish Blessing from I Brake For Stamps save yourself 10% by using the code Save10Chris 
Cardstock: see abovePaper Temptress Paper  POP Tones - Berrylicious,   Antique Parchment brownMetallics Fairway
