Papertake - Green

Cor, three posts in one day!! It is so lovley to have a day off to play in my craft room :O))

Here is the latest challenge from those lovley lasses at ArtyGirlz ....the title this week is Green which is fab because I have had some beautiful fabric Prima's in my stash for ages and have not had the chance to use them yet :O)) And, they have a guest designer this week who has chosen this theme...and he is called Fabrizio....have a look at his Blog here....cos it is loverly!

Here is the card I have made:



I have used some more Crate Papers for this card. I layered on two different designs onto some plain green paper. I then stamped the sentiment (Tim Holtz Collection) using Sepia Versafine ink. I edged all the pieces of paper with gold Krylon and then I added those heavenly flowers. I used some old buttons for the middles of the flowers, used some of the velvet ribbon that was in the box with the flowers and then coloured a slider, it started out as silver and I wanted gold, so the old Krylon pen came out again. Whilst I was busy altering the slider, I also altered a silver charm that says "follow your heart". I strung this onto gold lame thread and then threaded it thru the centre of the large flower before I stuck them down with silicone glue.

Thanks to the ArtyGirlz for the great challenge...have had loads of fun playing! :O))

Thanks for looking....

Gorgeous! I like the combinations of green you used.
I have to get one of those krylon pens. I love bordering with inks instead of papers.
