Shades of Green for Merry Monday

Today's card was inspired by the Merry Monday challenge.  I have been wanting to use this stamp, all the while knowing that it covers a good portion of the card.  That is always something I struggle with . . . full images!  It prevents me from lots of layering.  But this images was just too cute not to use. 

I actually used three shades of green . . . Mossy Meadow for my card base (which is super dark), Lucky Limeade for my background panel and the coloring of my image, and the ribbon is technically Old Olive. 

I used a a metallic pen to outline all of the snowy areas . . . the flakes, the drifts and the snowman.  I made the decision with coloring only items that would be anything other than neutral, and then I colored them green, of course. 

Now that I've christened my stamp with a "flat" use, I have an idea to use it differently in the coming weeks . . . wait for it.  Maybe next week's challenge will be the opportunity (and then again, maybe not).

  6. Aww...this is so sweet! Thanks for playing with us at Merry Monday!

  7. I love that your card is only green and white (with some sparkle). That was a great idea to only color in the greens. I struggle with those large stamps as well and I think you did this one proud.
