Accent Color Challenge

This week at Stamp TV the color challenge was to use black and ivory with one accent color. I chose my accent color to be lime green. It is one of my favorite colors and I'm even thinking about painting my craft/office room lime green! I used a patterned paper by Crate Paper on the bottom. For the top I embossed it with Cuttlebug's Victoria embossing folder and a distressed it with antique linen distress ink.

The focal image is from the Enjoy the Sunshine Stamp TV kit and used the drop shadow technique again. This time I dropped the shadow more so it was more evident. For the drop shadow I used Memento new sprout ink and tuxedo black ink, cut it out and embossed it with nestabilities, and then distressed the edges with antique linen distress ink. For the frame I used another nestabilities cut out and embossed. The ribbon is a black satin ribbon with antique white grograin that I ran the antique linen distress ink pad over to match the rest of the card. I also added a sliver of lime green under the ribbon that I edged using a martha stewart border punch.
