I'm normally not a green person, but I have to say that Cucumber Crush, a new 2015-2017 Stampin' Up! In Color, really has me going! I look at it and see bright summer green, as well as Christmas green. So yesterday, I had a chance to use it with the Sheltering Tree stamp set and totally loved the end result!
Hard to believe I only used two ink pads for this card - Cucumber Crush and Chocolate Chip. You notice the two tone on the tree and ground? I stamped the leaf image on the tree, then turned it slightly and stamped it again without reinking it. This technique is called "stamping off". I also did the same technique for the ground. Really adds so much depth and dimension to the image.
Isn't that bike adorable! All of the images used on this card were from the Sheltering Tree stamp set. Talk about versatility!! What else did I use? Well . . .
