Heart 2 Heart ~ Green Thumb

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week we have a fun challenge ~ Green Thumb. This is open to interpretation it could be plants, flowers, or even just using the color green. Have fun with it and just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

I have been seeing this technique called the Borgello Technique and have been wanting to give it a try. I started with white cardstock and then sponged Sweet Leaf, Green Apple, Fern and New England Ivy inks to create the background. I then cut the paper into 1/2 inch strips then attached them to a second white cardsock. I then ran the two layers through my die cutting machine using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. I used the Stitched Square Thin Cuts with New England Ivy to make the frame around the koala. I used the A Koala-ty Day Stamp and thin cut. I colored the koala with markers. I did use Black Pigment Ink with Clear Embossing Powder.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 31st to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
