Green Kitchens Here I Come
This week, Amber let us pick our own inspiration kitchen for the Verve challenge. I Googled "green kitchens" and had a ball looking at all the images that showed up. For a fleeting second, I thought of using my kitchen because it has green walls very close to the colour of the cupboards in this picture, but based on the state it is in, taking a picture of it was not an option LOL!
The sketch just about sent me into a tail spin for the second week in a row. Last week's worked me over but good and this week's has done the same. Guess that is why they call it a challenge, right :D I used kraft, celery, orange and white. The picture of my card made the orange a lot brighter than it actually is and try as I might, I couldn't adjust it so just imagine it being a few shades lighter. In hindsight, I should have scored the white panel as per the walls in the kitchen instead of using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Think I need to put that embossing folder in a container full of water and freeze it in my freezer so I can't get at it for a while!
I pulled out Verve's Wishing You set for my focal sentiment and added a brown half pearl to the end of each of the curly bits on the sentiment for a little "oomph". I kind of cheated on the tab portion of the sketch by using a Prima but hopefully Amber will let it slide... Rest is pretty self explanatory.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
