Raspberry Suite Color Challenge # 9

Dawn has challenged us again with another Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. Black and green are some of my favorite colors, but I don't often use them together. Here's the inspiration photo that Dawn provided:
I decided to make another text style vintage-y looking paper and go with an elegant theme. I started by stamping the leaf image from the Life set in New Leaf and then layered the Background Basics: Text Style stamp over the leaves in Palette Noir ink. A few layers of coordinating card stock, some distressing with the Heidi Swapp edge distresser tool and the main image was all done. I stamped the sentiment from Damask Designs on a scrap of paper and popped that up on foam tape. I really like how this turned out. I will definitely try this out in a few other color combos!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my take on this week's Color Challenge!

Card stock: Vintage Cream, New Leaf, True Black
Stamps: Life, Background Basics: Text Style, Damask Designs
Ink: New Leaf, Palette Noir
Accessories: True Black satin ribbon
Other: Paper trimmer, Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, foam tape, scissors, edge distressor tool
