Hello and thank you so much for visiting me - I really appreciate it. Sorry I haven't been around Blogland very much lately - I will try and do better!
I made this card for my wonderful husband, Darren's, birthday which was earlier this month.
I am sorry the photo is rather insipid - the black is very black and the background for the wonderful Lavinia Green Man stamp is gorgeous with various Oxide inks and the Green Man itself is coloured with Pro Markers too. My photography is rubbish! I stamped the image with Versafine and embossed it with clear powder then cut out with Spellbinders Labels 18. I popped it on with mounting foam on the black card base which I had first embossed with Creative Expressions Bark embossing folder. The sentiment and heart were made using dies that came free with a magazine. Darren has always loved the Green Man image and when I saw this stamp released last year by Lavinia, I just had to buy it straight away and hang onto it till his birthday this year! I am pleased to say he really likes the card!
The Green Man is found in many cultures from many ages around the world. It is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth representing the cycle of growth each spring. (Thank you Wikipedia!)
I would like to enter the following fabulous Challenges:
That's Crafty - Spring Into Action - Green Man
Cuttlebug Mania - Springtime -Green Man and I used my Big Shot for both the embossed background and the Spellbinders die cut.
Craft Stamper - Anything Goes.
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets - The main image and sentiment were both made from white snippets.
STAMPlorations - All about Spring and Faith - Green Man.
Thank you again for visiting me and I hope you are having a fabulous week.
Take care. Christine xxx
