Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Monday 19/7/10

Over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge the topic is "
black, white and another colour".  Yet again, I decided to challenge myself and use a colour I don't normally use - green.  I have used Ching-chou Kuik's Reflections image for the basis of the card and coloured her in with Promarkers - including green hair - with Promarkers and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint and Black Soot Distress Ink Pads.  The black and white card is some I have had for a few years from a Redhotbed kit, followed by some green vellum I've had for a while as well.  Underneath the mounts I decided to add an extra layer of some green mirri card edged with green and black peel-offs I've had for ages and ages.  The card is finished off with some ribbon I coloured with a black promarker, some card candy, a butterfly embellishment I've had for maybe 2-3 years, a sentiment off the computer and then two flowers I made using a book, various sized flower shapes cut out with my Cricut, each layer screwed up, flattened out and Peeled Paint and Black Soot distress ink put on alternate layers and all held together with some green glitzy brads.

This card fits the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Make your own flowers
