Good Thursday morning. Welcome to the Impression Obsession design team challenge. Our challenge today is Shades of Green.

For my project I used the Square Shaker Frames, Butterflies, Branch, Done In Love

I like highlighting a sentiment with framing.  The frame adds interest and dimension while still allowing the sentiment to be the main focus. I stamped the sentiment with black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. I attached the sentiment to the designer paper card base and attached the shaker frame on top with mounting tape.  I created a second outline frame using grand squares and attached with mounting tape.

I cut the branch twice using watercolor paper, painted with green reinker mixed with water and formed with my stylus and mat. I cut the butterfly twice, once with vanilla and once with the designer paper. I arranged the foliage and attached with glossy accents.  I attached the two butterflies together at the body center with glossy accents and put rolled glue dots dots between the wings to make the stand up.  I finished by adding pearls to the center.
