Embossed globe

Hello peeps, its bright and sunny outside, I think we can enjoy the sunshine for today, as tomorrow onward we have rain and grey skies in the forecast. The forecast is always accurate here!!!
I am enjoying looking around the sunshine for the last few days.
That being said, the  flu cases are on a high time rise, after subbing on Tuesday, I was feeling bit unwell yesterday, I had all the symptoms of a flu. I didn't craft yesterday the whole day, but sat down to craft in the evening, and ended up making 2 cards.

I am sharing the first one, it is a simple one layer card. I knew that I would be using a globe for this, but I was thinking about the background, I know globes are usually blue, but for me earth is GREEN. When I close my eyes and picture earth , it is the green color which dominates.

I started with inking the DI- crushed olives, after inking I used the same ink to add tiny splatters.
I then stamped the globe from hero Arts rubber stamps in black and heat embossed in clear EP.
I used Uniko Studio - background builders to stamp the leaves, and vines.
A few sequins to finish off.

 Ready to be embossed.

One layer

 I am joining in with a globe, which spins...or earth which spins slowly around the sun :)

I was inspied by the green color here

 I had used Hero Arts stamp, and embossing as well here.


Before I go, I thought of sharing some pictures of Macau. we have been blessed with beautiful clear and crisp blue skies for the last few days.

My craft room - it stays sunny most of the day, when there is sun, I love it, what more can I ask for?

I was out on Monday, and captured some pictures. The casinos look beautiful under the sunlight, and equally majestic at night.  
This is the other side of the island, main Macau - Macau Peninsula. 
You can see the Macau tower , this bridge is my most photographed bridge. 
This was from Sunday, when I went hiking 
Also from my hike, looking at our residences from the mountain 
Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
