ARTplorations Blog Hop Day 1

Hi Everyone, this is my second post today...scroll down, if you want to see the first one, or click HERE

lots of things happening at STAMPlorations this week! We are having a stencil blog hop!




I made this card for it:


Spritzed the background in light green, spritzed again in a darker shade of green with the stencil in place. Waited for the paper to dry. Cut it, underlayed it in black and added the sentiment. The flower I colored with pencils and fuzzy cut it. Added some leaves cut with a Memory Box die.

Her is a slightly different view:
