Olive with a Black Accent
I love the color Old Olive! It will always be one of my favorite greens (althought Wild Wasabi is a close second). So I decided to make it the main color for this card!!
I took the small leaf shape stamp from my new Papertrey Ink limited edition set called Simple Little Things and made some background paper with it. You see, because it is a leaf, I could stamp one direction for one row and then turn the stamp around and it fits in nicely! I love the effect!!
I actually used one of my Maya Road velvet flowers! These flowers are so increadibly beautiful that I have a hard time actually using them (I'm such a hoarder -- trying to work on that!). I added a Making Memories circle brad to the center and some green hemp for "leaves.
I found out today that I have a package sitting at the post office which I can pick up tomorrow. I believe that it is my Papertrey Ink order for this month, here in record time!! I can't wait! I'll be busy tomorrow night so expect some new projects with some new stamps!
Supplies: Paper-Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black (all SU!); Stamps-Simple Little Things (Papertrey Ink); Ink-Old Olive, Basic Black (SU!); Accessories-black velvet flower (Maya Road), brad (Making Memories), colored hemp (unknown).
Thanks for visiting.
