Totally Green


Still not feeling great, but how could I resist the challenge over at Dragons Dream TIO this week as the recipe is green, cogs and a die cut.  And being St Paddy's day it seemed a very fitting theme.  

I used my 4 colours of distress paint to create the background, stamped the cogs with olive green stazon and the numbers were swiped with jet black.

The LP image was stamped in black stazon onto a piece of kraft card and coloured with crushed olive distress ink.  I mounted it onto a piece of text script paper picked up on my hols.  The heart was die cut from metallic card and coloured with meadow alcohol ink.  Everything was stuck together and wrapped in green string.

Love both your tags, Sam. I made a lot of text at the other post, but something went wrong, but your backgrounds are great and I love the softgreen.

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.
