She Sits Quietly By the Sea


Hello! Sharing a card with you that I created for the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the theme is "Good to be Green."  How we interpret the theme is up to us.  I thought briefly about upcycling something, but in the end, as green is my favorite color chose instead to create a card in green tones.  I worked with a stencil and clip art image from Red Lead.  The stencil was inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, matted and layered to the card base.  The bling, metal fish, and wood word disk are all by Red Lead.  A simple, and refreshing card, I think.   I am also entering this at Frilly and Funkie where the challenge is "Summertime!" Thanks for stopping by.  Yvonne

Beautiful green piece--lots of fun elements, I especially like the little bit of sequins for bubbles.

A fantastic monochromatic vintage design! It's a lovely image, the background with words look fabulous, and love the details of metal and bling.
