Monstera Birthday


Today's card is for the Just Add Ink photo inspiration challenge and for Darnell's NBUS challenge (since it's the first time I've inked up this Altenew potted plant).  I love the inspiration photo as it could have been taken here where all our houses are built of stone and painted bright and cheerful colours with white roofs.  Over the years our house has gone through a number of colour changes.  Here's a photo of the transition from turquoise to dark blue.  Today the house is sage green.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Terracotta)
Patterned Papers:  (Kioshi 12x12) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Plant from Potted Plants) Altenew, (Sentiment from Sentimental: Birthday) Winnie & Walter 
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Eucalyptus) Catherine Pooler
Dies:  (Hemstitch Rectangles) Spellbinders
Gems:  Recollections

Great take on the photo, Jen! That's an awesome potted plant image and I love your design! Thank you for sharing the photo of your house. I'll bet it is beautiful in sage green and what a view you must have from up there! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! I hope you are keeping well! Hugs, Darnell

Wow, I love the bold colours of your house - my neighbours would not be happy if I painted our house a bright colour! Your card is wonderful - I love how the bold border frames the potted plant. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink.
