It's weekend again, the weeks seem to fly by more and more quickly the older I get.
This morning started out cool and misty, but in the afternoon the sun came out and the skies were blue again. The green of the fresh grass and trees is just overwhelming, and I can't see enough of it. The first green of the leaves is always such a special, intensive colour, just wonderful.
The two cards here are part of my DT work for Gecko Galz this month. These images have been printed onto some of my hand-painted and stamped background papers. The ink stays wet for some time on the acrylic paint, so it is possible to emboss it after printing. I used tinsel hologram EP. The images are from the silhouettes stamp set. Strangely enough, I have 2 of the images as stamps as well, but the digi-stamps have the advantage here that they can be printed in almost any size, which makes them very flexible. I matted the images with dark grey mirri card, and used card-stock in petrol and purple for the cards, to complemet the colours in my background paper. I used coordinating ribbons and flowers as embellishments.

I am linking to Paint Party Friday and AJJ, happiness, as these are colours which make me happy again and again, and to Paper Saturdays
