The Sunday Stampers
Mmmm - now first of all a little whinge. The theme this week is 'Going for Green' and Hels wanted us the hum the Going for Gold' theme tune. What actually happened was that I whistled Kermit the frogs 'It's not Easy being Green' for the best part of two hours. Now I'm a big fan of Kermit, and all things Muppety, but it seems that not everyone shares my enthusiasm!!
I have made a tag this week - didn't mean to, it started off as a card, but whoever said there are no mistakes in craft, just happy accidents needs to see my rubbish bin!!
The tag has been inked up with lots of different shades of green, and Moon Glowed with gold. The background stamp is by Elusive Images and has been inked in Adirondack lettuce.
The sentiment is by Simple Expressions. Same background stamp, but stamped onto a distressed inky background.
The flower is also by Simple Expressions. It's been stamped in lettuce, then stamped onto acetate. I embossed this with verdigris embossing powder - and it looked awful!!
BUT I turned it over, and it looked quite nice, kind of like molten glass, so it stayed :o)
The bit in the middle is another little S E stamps which was stamped in gold then ultra thick embossed.
A few prima's and a dragonfly brad and all done....
or so I thought....I couldn't let it rest, I wanted a card. So I folded a piece of acetate into a DL size, and lined it with some patterned velum (this doesn't show up to well on the photograph) I poked holes through both layers and threaded the gold ribbon through to join the layers together.
The tag has been stuck on the front, and a Serendipity sticker popped underneath.
I really enjoyed making this, but it certainly isn't easy being green....
