Shades of Green


More texture paste and puff paint through a stencil onto the tag and heated.


Coloured with olive green lumiere paint.


The top section has been accented with olive bronze treasure gold and the bottom section with onyxite treasure gold.


The embellished tag.  The image is stamped onto a crackled background cut with a nesties spellbinder. For some reason the light has really picked up on the colour of the crushed olive distress stain used to colour the lace.  It's nowhere near that bright IRL!!!

I recognise the problem with the colours on a photograph. But I get the picture (?) and your tag looks lovely. You really got started with the puffing paint :0
Lovely effect!
Hugs,
Marianne

Totally love this again Sam. Can I ask what make of puff paint you use?
Some combinations are horrible to photograph but I can imagine that it looks fab irl. Love that stamp.

My Photo
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
