I loved Stef's IC challenge today. I was tempted to use photos on my card, but in the end I stuck with stamping.
I know this needs something else, but nothing I have tried works.
My first thought was that Ireland is famous for its Forty Shades of Green - and then I thought, it's green because it rains so much :D.
A2 gold base.
Next two layers are Polished Stone incorporating 3 shades of green Alcohol Inks - Pesto, Bottle and Meadow, with some Gold mixatives on the bottom layer. All edges sponged lightly with black. The Rubber Romance girl was stamped on watercolour paper with Versafine Black and coloured with H2Os. Her belt and handbag were stamped a second time, and layered,so the ends of the belt are loose, and the bag, while the handles of the bag and tied part of the belt are stuck straight to the card. The umbrella was also stamped twice, and embossed with clear EP before being popped up on foam.
I tried brads and flowers in the top right corner, but I can't get anything to work. I thought I had some raindrop shaped gems, but can't find them.
And it's NOT raining - it's glorious warm sunshine and everybody is out cutting their grass.

Your card is fantastic!! You're right there are the "40 Shades of Green" because it rains. Ireland is BEAUTIFUL! I was there in the spring and I'll never forget those huge rhododendron TREES! Gorgeous!!
Your polished stone bg is exquisite! I thought it was a DP it is so perfect! Great work!! Your gal with the umbrella is so great with how you put her together.

I don't think it needs a thing, Sabrina! This is lovely as can be. Your polished stone is a gorgeous backdrop for this fabulously colored image! So glad you have sun today, us too (although it's still wicked cold out!).
