A Touch of Teal

I love the combination of soft greens and soft teals!  It's cool and sophisticated without being cold!

For this card, I have created a background by smooshing some glossy cardstock through a couple green distress inks stamped onto a craft sheet and misted.  I then stamped a teal distress ink onto the mat and dabbed the cardstock onto the ink.  To finish off the background panel, I overstamped the Handwritten Music background from the Behind the Scenes set (Plate of the Month at RRD) with Timber Brown StazOn.  I didn't wait for the base ink to completely dry so that I would get a great slightly smeared aka distressed look on my background!

From there, I stamped this sophisticated lady from Winter Women on a piece of white cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento.  I colored her in with my copic markers and then matted the image with some Chocolate Chip cardstock.

  1. I too like your colour palette Shar, along with the music script and focal image it gives a lovely Vintage feel.
