Muse #156 + Simon Say A Bit O'Green

I've been thinking about Michele's fabulous camouflage die cut card for Muse #156 all week and finally used her inspiration to make a birthday card for my dad.

A diagonal line masked off part of the panel and then a leafy stencil design inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. After the stencil was removed, more Mowed Lawn and a little Twisted Citron inks were blended over the leafy images. A birthday word die was placed along the diagonal line and the die cut set aside. A green die cut word was inset into the opening and the sentiment finished with stamps from PTI Birthday Cheer.

A couple of white die cuts were stacked on the inset word before the original stenciled die cut was added on the top. With this angle, you can see a tiny edge of the green die cut at the bottom of the stacked words.

A few enamel dots were scattered to finish the card off. With the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp to add a "Bit O'Green",  I am also linking to their blog. Wednesday Challenge Blog
