Blue & Green

This weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge is to use blue and green.  Well, I just couldn't wait any longer to use this gorgeous image from Flourishes Garden Gate stamp set.  I stamped it with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and cut it out (no Silhouette machine here, just scissors!)   I used green spot paper from Spring Drop DSP (First Edition) for the background, layered it onto blue cardstock and wrapped some blue satin ribbon round the base.  Then I die cut some white cardstock with Spellbinders Labels 20, making a frame with two dies and embossing it.  Then I die cut a piece of blue cardstock with the smaller die and glued the frame onto it and cut around the frame so that it was outlined in blue.  I adhered this to the background and stamped the sentiment which is from Flourishes Tag Lines onto the background paper.  Then it was just a matter of adding the stamped image with foam tape, some light blue pearls and a blue bow.

Copic Colours used were:  B000, B00, B02, Y11, Y15, YG61, YG63.
