A Green Theme


I played with my greens in my distress paints, but they didn't give that gooder coverage, so I took my fresco paints and mingled them into the background, after sanding, I got this wonderful effect on the tags.  The distress paint, sort of resisted the fresco!!


Main LP image stamped in black stazon onto white card, cut out and coloured with hey pesto.  Home made washi tape, PA stamping in cactus, olive green and bamboo.  Topped and tailed with pediments die cuts.


Pretty much the same as above except I die cut a fleur de lis, painted it in honey dew and re-stamped the face from the LP image.

These are for a tag swap on PaperPlay forum where the theme is green.

Love the greens - and I love how you top and tail the tags - it frames the images brilliantly.

They are fab. I'm not a fan of using green, but these make me want to have a go.

Abolutely fab both of them and the colour (and shades thereof) are right up my street. Beautiful and very clever stamping on that fleur de lis. There you go again with that pediments die ....... which I didn't think I needed, lol!
