O is Oval & Olive

Did you know my local craft store sells every colour ink apart from Olive??? I do now. *lol*
Had to improvise and use a green then a black inkpad on my stamp, did a couple of test stampings before I did the topper just in case it looked horrendous but it looked quite good so went with it.

Whilst at the craft store I came across the Do Craft Oval dies (nesting???) so ended up buying them.... see, I saved money on the ink..... that's my thinking!

White on white on white, the background is another Do Craft die, can't remember what its called, its actually an A6 die so I have to do 2 sheets of paper and put them together to make a 6 x 6 card - hence the ribbon. Crafty cover-up!

The tree branch is a stamp from Chloe's Cards which I received in one of the swaps over at Cardexchange Uk and that's the only Olive colour on the card.
The butterflies and the 'with love' sentiment are Tattered Lace mini dies and are cut from a Papermania paper pack - I'd say it was a off cream colour.

  1. Brilliant idea to mix black with the green colour to get the olive. Good thinking Batman! What a bargain your oval dies turned out to be too. Love your nifty idea with the ribbon. Thank you for fluttering by . Your card will be entered twice. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Hi Amanda,
    what a brilliant idea the combining of the inks to create Olive.

    Super and lovely little butterflies.
