It seemed kind of fitting that during the All Blacks test match against the Wallabies tonight, I should have a go at the 'All on Black' challenge at TGIF.

To me, this challenge seemed to be made for a technique I've always enjoyed playing around with and that is Joseph's Coat. So I started by sponging a piece of Whisper White card with Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green. Then I clear embossed the fern stamp from Daisy Lane over it. Finally, I smeared Tuxedo Black over the top and wiped off the excess with tissues.

That made such a vibrant ground for the rest of the card to build up from.

I punched, sponged and layered up the daisy. The Granny Apple Green strip behind the sentiment is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. I've added in some die cut foliage pieces from the Wild Rose dies, which I've sponged lightly to blend the greens more.

I'm really happy with the brightness and vibrancy of this card. I think it will bring a smile to the recipient. Or at least, I hope so.
