I created this verdigris colour card for the Polka Doodles Week 16 Challenge – Monochromatic.
After looking through my archive of papers I decided on shades of green for this challenge. I had to use Emerald Smooch Spritz and Colorbox chalk inks to add a little bit of depth to the card background. For the embossing I used PSX “Verdigris” and “Topiary green” embossing powder. The three stamps used on this card were:
- Crafty Individuals CI-234 (UK) for the bird-cage and leaves
- Great Impressions (South Africa) N1326 for the cracked effect on the background paper
- Inkadinkado (US) 97634 “Dot flourishes” for the swirl. Unfortunately I stamped the swirl in the middle of the background instead of the right hand corner to make it more visible.
I added a satin bow with green paper roses, leaves and a few pearls. Thanks Dolka Doodles Design Team for such a wonderful challenge. Enjoy the weekend.
