A touch of green ships

I decided to use some of my old stamps, and these were some of my oldest and are from the stampman. I stamped and powder embossed with moonglow emerald obsidian powder. Lover this as changes colour when tilted. I cut the 3 images close to their edges. 

I then used moonglow pigment inks also an early purchase when I ventured into card making and I am surprised they haven't yet evaporated, to paint areas on the stamps. I used mint sea green and cocoa brown.I love the sheen they have and works so well with the embossing powders.

I seem to have a run on male cards at present but they always come in useful. I used a layout from try stampin' on a Tuesday and finished the card off with a few square gems, and a peel-off sentiment.

I know its not strictly CAS but I think it definitely has a clean and fresh look to it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Whoopsi daisy-green and a sentiment

Glitter n sparkle-use some green

Eureka stamps-anything goes

Shopping our stash-use charms/St.Patrick's day/green

Julye, I really like this - the coloring of the background has such an antique look - I am sure it is even more impressive IRL as the colors change. What a great guy card - or for anyonem, for that matter. Thanks for coming to the Eureka Stamps anything goes challenge.

We can never have too many male cards and especially not when they are as beautifully executed as yours. Love the embossing because it add both depth and texture to your design. Very nicely crafted. Thanks so much for sharing with us at 613 Avenue Create!
