Monochromatic Granny Apple Green – Planted Paradise

Welcome to the weekend and to this week’s Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop theme with Granny Apple Green as our featured colour.

I was inspired by some home decor I saw and created a bit of a funky background with the pot from the Planted Paradise stamp set. This is a Reversible stamp set which means that one side of the stamp has one image and you flip the stamp over to reveal another image.

I used the Stamparatus (retired) to stamp the black pot a few times. Any stamp positioning tool would work and enables you to get a nice dark image. I flipped the stamp over and inked up in Granny Apple Green ink, then spritzed the stamp before stamping the image. This gave the image a lovely watercoloured look.

I drew some lines with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend using a ruler as a guide. Starting off with the bullet tip I felt it needed some wider stripes so I freehanded the thicker stripes with a brush end of the Blend. This was totally out of character for me as I love straight, neat lines. However, I loved the look of these and will probably be trying this again for some custom backgrounds.

Foliage from the Flowers of Beauty dies provides a simple focal point against the different textures and patterns on the card.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration. Many of these products are retiring on the 30th of April and you can shop them in our Last Chance Sale while supplies last.

Have a lovely weekend.
