Gingersnap Creations colour challenge-Glorious Greens!

Over at Gingersnap Creations , colour challenge 136 is underway...Glorious Greens!
Now, I adore green, and its generally my fall back colour whenever I get creative. I have been trying very hard to use other colours recently though!!! When I saw this challenge however, I couldn't resist the lure of the green again........!!
I smeared green paint over a cardstock panel, and did a bit of brayering/printing with more paint to add a bit of texture. Alphabet stamps, bottle tops, the edges of credit cards, you name it, it gets painty! I stamped the flourish directly onto the background...
as I needed somewhere for my angel lady to stand! The lady herself is stamped onto tissue then applied with Mod Podge. I didn't want to risk stamping HER directly onto the background in case the detail was lost on the paint texture. A text phrase from a cut up old book was added to finish it off!

I see more green creations on the horizon, loved getting my greens out again!
Love Trish xx

  2. Wonderful background with all the different textures, fab. I didn't like green until I started crafting.
