Go Green

Thought I would try something completely different today! Following the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches and the challenge over at Designed 2 Delight (white with one) I made a wall hanging.

and a close up

As you can see my colour is green! The stamps are from Autumn Leaves - who cares? and obviously the theme is 'green'. They are an eclectic group of stamps with things like owls, 'mother nature' conserve, a tap etc. I love the set but haven't used it very much! So the challenge for me was to dig down deep into my paper stack for green and also to find 8 different shades of green ink ... but I managed! I also managed to used recycled chipboard (it was part of some packaging) to make the frame.

I decided to do this to hang up on the wall in my craft corner as it was looking a little bare - there is only some much blank yellow wall (yes that is the colour of my walls - and it is a bright yellow!) you can look at. I enjoyed making it ... but I made one hell of a mess doing it - I heat embossed and now everything feels like it has little grains on it!

Thanks for looking.
