Splash of Green

SD532334
One of the things I love about the blogging world is being able to ask for advice when things aren't quite right with a project. I'm doing this here.... Over at the Play Date Cafe their challenge this week is a Colour Splash – more specifically black & white a splash of GREEN. Green is not really a favourate of mine, and inspiration was lacking so I decided to try another card for this weeks Less is More challenge (pick a square) as the previous one wasn’t quite right (should of left the ribbon off!) and I also wanted something to enter this into the Artistic Stamper Challenge which is ‘Ladies and Girls’. I’m not at all sure about it – I used a stencil and sprayed some DistSD532330ress re-inker mixed with water, onto which I stuck this silhouette, which is from one of the new stamp sets by Stamp Addicts and just added the Penny Black sentiment.  The idea worked in my head – not sure it has on paper..or card! Suggestions anyone..???  Esther xx

  15. Hi Esther, Very pretty card, perhaps your image would be more prominent if you had inked the edges of the mask VERY lightly with the same distress ink(with cut and dry foam) to show the mask shape behind that pretty silhouette? Tell me to get lost but you did ask LOL Have fun, hugs:0) xxx

  17. Honestly esther, I really like this.... perhaps you aren't happy with it because of the texture of the paper? It's a wee bit distracting??? Otherwise I can't see why you're concerned about it!!! Jo x

  19. Well, this is so different and neat! I love the deep texture your paper and edges have. The silhouette is different and elegant. Thanks so much for playing with us at The Cafe this week!

  20. Actually Esther, I think that the edge of the splatter is a little too defined, if it gradually faded to nothing it would be great, but this a so difficult to achieve in a small space. Maybe if the edge of your mask was a little more randomly shaped it might work... however having said this it's fine as is.
    She looks as though she's jumping for joy!
    Thanks so much.
