Lavinia monthly challenge

This month the theme at the Lavinia challenge blog is lemon & lime.  I stamped the pods & reeds in archival black, masked with a large circle of paper and used 2 green & 2 lemon stampinup inks with inkdusters to create a blended background.  When I removed the mask the white circle was a bit too stark so I added a small amount of saffron ink on a duster to just knock the brightness back.  A simple black layer & sentiment and one finished card.  In real life the colours are quite bright.
