Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 14 March 2014 - St Patrick's Day so anything green

 It is time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This week in honour of St Patrick's Day the challenge is "mainly green".
I have come out of my comfort zone for this card.  I have used the Delicious Doodles image called "Sparkling Cyanide" and coloured in with 8 (yes 8!!) shades of green Promarkers.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Shabby Shutters distress ink.  I then embossed a piece of card on one half of it with a Tim Holtz cog die and again inked with Shabby Shutters.  I then stamped the bottom with a mesh effect stamp and a green Versafine.  I didn't have the right colour ribbon so some cream ribbon I won in some candy got coloured with my Holly Promarker.

I have finished the card off with die-cut cogs and buttons, brads, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and then I used a green Promarker and coloured a piece of card (as I hadn't got any light green card), stamped my skull and crossbone with green Versafine and cut out.  I thought this matched the skull and crossbone in the image.
