Green and Black

Dynamic Duos have the challenge to use Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black this week.
This was a first time out for my PTI Harvest Berries stamps.
I stamped in black and clear embossed the leaves before sponging colour over the entire panel. I then overstamped with the green to add a shadow effect and then added the dots... presumably the berries from the stamp set.
The border is punched with an SU punch and the tag is from Lilli of the Valley.
We discovered that the hot water cylinder has been leaking and the ceiling in the dining room, which is beneath the tank, is damaged and decidedly damp! I await the plumber as I type!
Two days ago the microwave exploded. There was a loud bang and the fuse tripped. A replacement will  cost approaching £800. Oh Dear! We'll never be rich!


  1. wow stunning card chrissie you are so clever hugs sassy xxx

  2. Fabulous card and colour too.

    Hope you don't have to wait too long for your plumber and hope you find a replacement microwave on sale somewhere too .... ours did something not dissimilar but we were able to get hold of an ex-display model on e-bay - we bid for it, a FRACTION of the cost of new but never actually plugged in! - just a thought


  3. Stunning card - that's my fave PTI set so you've reminded me I must play with it again soon.

    Hope you get the plumbing sorted and find a cheaper microwave!

  4. Chrissie, this card is beautiful! I love the technique you've used, it creates such depth! I might try that out myself! Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos!

  5. I admire this card! She is once again incredibly beautiful!
    The colour duo is wonderful and the shadows perfectly mastered!
    What a great technique!
