It's funny that I call this my green card. I made this for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. If you only knew where this card started, you would laugh when you see where it ended. When I first saw the trigger, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I instantly thought of the doily cut on the Wild Card cartridge. Then I had the idea to weave strips of green paper to imitate the pattern on the chair in the trigger picture. UUMMMM...yeah, that didn't work out so much. But this is where I ended up.
I still used the doily cut on the Wild Card cartridge, but my oh my did it change. I made this flower using a technique I learned by watching a tutorial by Tracy. It was so easy and I love love love how it came out. Thank you so much Tracy!! Anyway, I made the flower out of cream card stock and then I sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. I decided that I wanted it to have more depth so I rubbed some Tea Dye Distress Ink on my craft mat, sprayed it with water, and used my paintbrush to paint around the edges. After all that, I changed the paper I was using, AGAIN, and then went outside and snipped a little tiny branch off my baby tree. (Sorry honey, don't be mad) I also used the same Tea Dye Distress Ink on my cream colored satin ribbon. Here is a close up of the flower. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
