Artful Times and mainly green

What an amazing first challenge we have had at Artful Times with 38 enties and 68 wonderful followers :)
Sam's choice this fortnight and she would like to see a mainly GREEN background so off I went and had a messy play time with some inks made the similar way as Netty's on  Happy Daze but no matter how I tried ! it would photograph well, but has happens when you have a play you then can't decide what to do with it so it sits and waits inspiration .
Ok let's try again. Honest there is no white on the background :( I stamped an embossed in clear on a light green wrinkle free background then inked over with the darker green and splashed with water and iron the clear embossing powder to melt it away ready for ...... opps inspiration walked out the door so they also sit wating to be finished off
I really don't think my camera likes green as this is an alcohol ink back ground on glossy card stamped with a Crafty Individual stamp in black Archival and again onto some inked paper and cut out the butterfly and flower so it's a simple atc from me this week
You will find lots more inspiration from Sam and Neet at Artful Times and hope you will all join us again :)

It may be simple, Von but it looks stunning! Love it. Love your other B/gs too - wonderful and always useful to have a few around. Just add some text and bits and a cut out image, they'll be great!

You have been having fun Von, even if it didn't all come together at once - it will eventually.
Love your CI ATC.
I am off to Ally Pally tomorrow are you going?
Have a wonderful weekend.
