Bit O’ Green 

In honour of St Patricks day on 17th March
This week we are showcasing Taylored Expressions Products this week. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

There are all the colours of the rainbow on my card along with a bit of green. I followed the challenge title to the T!  Taylored Expressions dies are one of my favourite. They are unique and you can combine their dies to create a scene as they all coordinate well with each other. That is what I have done with my card.
I have used On the Line Beach die set along with Little Bits Adirondack Chair, Little Bits: Sun and Clouds and Skinny Mini Borders Spring dies to create my scene. And to add colours to my elements, I have used the new Distress Oxide inks.

For my background, I sponged Fossilzed Amber, Broken China and Faded Jeans distress oxide inks,  added water spatter and heat set to get that chalky look to the oxide. On an another bristol paper, I sponged Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo distress oxide inks, spattered with water, heat set before using the On the line Beach die to die cut the palm trees. I also die cut four of the stitched detail leaves of the palm tree which I layered one behind and one on top of the base trees. I adhered this on the background using foam adhesives.

I similarly repeated the process of distress inks to die cut all the other elements for the card. Only the clouds don’t have any colour on them. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Pool Play stamp set stamped using black ink and MISTI. Finally the card is embellished with Snow Flurries sequins.

Here are couple of closeups photos of the card.
