it ain't easy using green

Challenges are supposed to be challenging, right?  That's the beauty of  'em.  Hadn't played over at Less is More for awhile, and #62,  this week's theme almost made me sit out another week.  Use three shades of green on a card.  Green!

I chickened out after running fifty different inking possibilities through my head.  Came up with this.

Decided to make a nest (embroidery floss) on a branch (used a stylus to create a branch) and put a bunny in it rather than a bird.  I do love how the greens (3 of 'em) are the only pop of color.  I don't  really like how the branch turned out.

Created my own sentiment for the inside - "some bunny loves you".  Not very original, but punny.

I'm also linking up to Runway Inspired Challenge #9.

As cool as the dress is - it just screamed "green and white" to me.   Which basically scared me away.  Love how the DT used the stripes/ angles, but didn't want to copy that.  Decided the lines of bunny's egg coupled with the fibre of the nest qualified me :)

Thanks for looking.

Supplies some bunny:
Paper: CS American Crafts
Stamps: Impression Obsession
Ink: black Versafine
Tools: stylus
Other: embroidery floss, Glossy Accents

That is so cute, love the simplicity of it! Thanks for your comments on my cards. I made the yellow splatters with Smooch Spritz spray, I love that stuff and use it all the time. The gold is especially nice. Thanks, Barb

Maria, this card is super cute! And I actually like that branch. I looked at it for ages trying to work out what you had done, and then I read your words, LOL! It's a great idea!

What a cute idea for that bunny image! I really like the different shades of green embroidery floss you used for the nest too. I'm so glad you played along with the Runway Inspired Challenge!
