Now I admit, I don't own ANY lime ink, nor do I think I will in the near future. As great as it looks with black and white, I don't find myself reaching for it when I make cards. However, I do have lots of lime green patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist" collection, and I'm always happy to use my papers!
I decided to make two clean and simple variations of my card using the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #14 along with their Happy Hexagons Mini Stamp Set and coordinating die.
Version one -- clean and simple, no dry embossing, just added some gems.
The second version has a bit more green (the sentiment was stamped with Hero Arts Grass chalk ink) and I added some dry embossing, too. (I am SO happy I got this embossing folder...Lin knows how long I have admired her work with it!)
I am hoping this card also fits the bill for the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World as I repeated the black hexagon shape (whether or not is is filled with color).
I HAVE to get my hands on this issue...do you have it yet?
I hope your day is going well. My DH is now off for a week and we have big plans for house projects in the days to come...my daughters want to paint their bedroom purple and we have agreed...gulp! (I really would hate to hear them sitting around the Thanksgiving dinner table in about 20 years saying how they "always wanted a purple room but were never allowed to have it." Hey, its only paint, right?) Wish us luck!
