Gingersnaps TWO Colors ONLY

Hello! I'm writing today to tell about and show you my card for the Gingersnap Creations challenge to use only TWO colors!!! It was really hard to do. But with sponging I have done it! The two colors I chose are a favorite color combo for me--purple and green!

Here's the card~

I used a technique that I saw on Vicky's blog here to create the flower, and then stamped some extra ones and popped them up for dimension. I added some heat embossing to the back purple shimmery dry embossed panel and then I sponged around it to show some depth. I also added a bunch of clear glitter gel pen. You can't really see these effects in that pic, so I'll show you some details! :)

Details~






This is also my "Spread the L-O-V-E" card for the week--I'll be giving it to a good friend I've been thinking of! :) Click the picture if you'd like to join in my blog movement! :)


So, that's about it. I've been really busy taking pics of my April DT cards and post dating the posts so that I don't forget to do them!!! ;) Hope you like what you see, and I hope you come and join us in this challenge! Happy stamping!!! :)
