Here is my card for today's Ways to Use It Challenge WT376 It's Not Easy...Being GREEN! Green is my favorite color and I use it quite often in my cards, so this was a fun one for me. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo! There is a large stand of bamboo in the yard behind our house and they make a gorgeous backdrop for our landscape, but they are loud. Between the birds chirping and the bamboo singing, there is quite the cacophony of sound! I was talking to my friend the other morning, complaining about my early morning wake-up call and she said that she loves bamboo and the early mornings wouldn't bother her a bit, so that was the inspiration for this card which I will be sending to her. I wish I could send her some of the noise too, lol! Anyway, for my card I inked my stamp first in VersaMark, then in Kiwi Kiss, stamped then embossed with clear embossing powder. While still warm, I dusted on Spring Green Pearl Ex, reheating different areas and applying more Pearl Ex to achieve desired effect.

I love bamboo too - my worry would be more about how it spreads, so I've never had more than enough to grow in a large pot. I think this is a beautiful card and I can imagine how lovely the shimmer is. There's something about bamboos that lends itself to that :D, I quite often use Perfect Pearls on my stamp.

I love how soft this card looks.
