My emerald, black and white vision!

It's really wierd...maybe the same thing happens to you....but just before I fall asleep a new colour combination often springs into my head! It can be really annoying as it keeps me awake lol


Anyway this was the colour scheme that kept me awake recently. I adore green, every shade of it..but had never used emerald before.

I made this card for my little friend Georgia, as she has just celebrated her 13th birthday!! Oh to be a teenager again lol. The floral stamp is by Elusive images....and I made a little matching envelope insert as well.

And because I liked the colours so much I made a second card....



This is a similar design to another card I made recently...but I just liked it so I did another one! .

Well who knows what I'll be dreaming up next lol.

First card

  • Image: Leanne Ellis
  • Floral Stamp : Elusive Images
  • Sentiment: Hero Arts
  • Ink: Adirondack in Meadow
  • Accessories: Martha Stewart punch

Second card

  • Sentiment: Stamps Unlimited
  • Floral stamp : Elusive Images
  • Ink : as before
  • Letters: Technique Tuesday

Loving that colour combo!! Really adore the second card, especially the gorg ribbon and border punches. Crafting is such a wierd thing like that where you get excited about thinking about some new product and how you're going to use it and it ends up keeping you awake!!! I've done it many times!!

Sue said...

Stunning cards, Sarita. Green isn't a colour I would normally go for, but you have changed my opinion on that. Love that Elusive image stamp, it's so classy.

I also have ideas whirring around in my head when I go to bed, a bit of a nuisance sometimes when I can't get to sleep cause of it.x

Brilliant colour combo Sarita. Poor you, being kept awake by it, but what a lucky girl Georgia was. That's a tremendous card you made for her. I love the look of these two cards.
