You may know that Greenery is the Pantone color of the year for 2017. The folks over at PowerPoppy (I love their flower stamps) are doing a Let’s Go Green challenge this month to celebrate the fresh color. What a better subject than a green leaf with dewdrops glimmering on them?
Dewdrops is a lesson in the Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature class and so I got out my Prismacolor colored pencils and got busy. It was like magic, how with just a bit of shading and adding of highlights, that circles came to life to form droplets. I was so pleased with the result.
To complete the card, I used a green Paper Studio cardbase and layer a patterned paper as well as a cardstock layer that I had embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder. I added the image and a sentiment in opposite corners.
I think the celebration of fresh green came together very nicely.
