Color Dare--Sweet Leaf & Olive

This week at Color My Heart the color dare is to use Sweet Leaf and Olive. I love green so this was an easy one for me! By adding the Always Grateful stamp set to the task, I was in creative heaven!

I love trees and my favorite stamp set in our Autumn Winter 2013 Idea Book is definitely the Always Grateful stamp set! This is what I came up with for the Color My Heart dare! Now, it's a bit hard to see, but I did use Sweet Leaf. Its the trees in the background that are kind of shadows. Using a lighter color or a 2nd generation inking will give a feeling of depth in your image.  The sun...or moon...whichever it looks like to you...was made with a simple mask and inking around it. I used my 1 1/4" circle punch and put a bit of our glue stick on the back. Let the glue air dry and then it acts like a post it note! The sponged area was done with Champagne ink. The patterned paper is from the Huntington paper pack.  The Artisan Studs were a perfect accent for the side of the trees!
