I was here!

Hello friends!
Happy World Women's Day!!!
                     Behold, my friends, the spring has come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love! — Sitting Bull
                    Spring Season is the most pleasant season in India. Poets have sung many songs about the beauty of this season. Every object of Nature looks very beautiful. Green plants are there in the fields. The earth looks green with its plants and flowers. Spring is neither hot nor cold. The beauty of spring makes us forget our sorrows. Its music thrills our ears. Its beauty pleases our eyes. Its freshness kills our cares. So spring is my favorite season.
                   This week’s Amusing Challenge is to use green! So here is my "green" creation. I am so excited as it is my 2nd post as DT and I am feeling so happy to use Modern Zinnia  from  A Muse Studio, as I received the stamp set from  my wonderful friend Chris Franco from A Muse Studio!!!
I stamped some flowers on white CS and heat embossed them. Then misted the panel with water, gave it a subtle effect and distressed the edges. Using border die, I cut that panel.
On the other remaining panel I adhered the border stencil and applied the embossing paste and removed it gently. After drying misted it with lots of water... used gelatos, green dye inks… dabbing between colors to prevent too much of a mess and to keep the colors soft. Then applied candy rock crackle paint and leave it to dry. You can see the beautiful crackle effect and shine in the picture below.  So much fun and so very easy.
Then I stamped more flowers on a colored vellum sheet, heat embossed them and using my octagon die, I created those beautiful flowers.
Then I matted my panel on white textured CS and adhered them to main card base. I popped up my flowers using glue dots and embellished with green micro beads. Then stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it.
Hope you enjoyed my creation!!!
Have a good day!

Wow, Vinita, I am always amazed at your creativity and this is no exception! So beautiful! It has a 3-D look with the gelatos and I really like those flowers you made! I enjoy your close-up photos too! It sounds like spring has sprung over in India but it it still winter here and we have lots of snow. I am ready for spring!

Absolutely beautiful card Vinita! Lovely stenciling and the flowers are beautiful.

You can also link this into Cuttlebug Mania - where the current them is 'Green with envy' - and you just need to use shades of green as you have, plus you used a die cut as well. So long as your machine is manual it's fine, not just limited to using a Cuttlebug!
