Colour Swatch Card

I been wanting to try stamping onto colour swatch's for some time. So when I opened January's issue of craft stamper magazine,  and came across Sharon Bliss design using colour swatch's,  which I though look fab I was reminded that I wanted to try that. So I set about looking for a stamp I knew I had, but had not used, also I used my old faithful swirl stamp I use lots. I stamped two images one on a grey tone swatch and one on green I used the green one to make my card.The main design is I believe is an  ellusive image stamp.

I stamped the card background using my swirl stamp and pine needles distress ink which gave it a fab distress look I inked the edges of the card with walnut stain distress ink I mounted the image which was stamped using black staz on onto black card, then green to make it pop I added a gingham green bow and three green gems that were given to me in a goody parcel some time ago by my friend Val (thanks Val) I decided to enter the card to a challenge - Lets ink it up
