The first card and the second actually are both for the picture inspiration. I made the card below but was a bit dissatisfied with it and I wanted to use the pussy cat since she is on a table and I saw the table in the picture inspiration although the table is entirely different:) The card above I stamped in clear and embossed in clear the fern and leaf. I used cotton batton with dye inks in darker yellow and 2 greens and then wiped it off so one could see the white ferns. I used alcohol inks in yellow and pearl and mounted the cat and coloured the picture in tombow markers. I used a border punch for the bottom of the card. I stamped in 2 different greens the saying and added the crystals and stickles around the word.
This is more my monochrome card. I did actually use a clear stamp for leaves and embossed in psychedelic for the background although it was a bust..I think. Anyways, I coloured the backgound in 2 different greens and a little yellow(my extra colour) in pastel chalks. I stamped the fern in a green and again used a slight yellow for the middle and green on the edges in pastel chalks. I coloured the sticker border in green and topped it off with green flowers which I highlighted with some stickles. I hope this works for monochrome:) It has been a day of memories and of sincere thoughts and feelings. My thoughts have been with the friends across the border and green, to me, represents growth and beginnings. All the best to you
