Going Green....

...mmmm, with a teensy tad of envy LOL You know that Linda woman, you know, the one who has mentioned in passing that she is going to Ranger U next week? Well, it just so happens that a certain Wendy Vecchi will also be at Ranger U too! I actually did a little happy dance for Linda earlier when she called me to tell me... she starting off by saying "promise me you won't hate me" ROFL As if I could... all I do wish is that I too were going to Ranger U next week, I could then push Linda out of the way and bagsie the chair next to Wendy LOL




Anyways... Linda has these countdown to Ranger U tags on the go...today is 8 more sleeps to go... anyone can join in ... so I have joined in and made a tag - which is naturally green... well, what other colour could I use??? LOL I used some Trad Tan to make a resist using a stipple (is that how you spell stipple???) brush, then used Crushed (oh, I truly am indeedily crushed) Olive, Forest Moss and Pumice Stone DI's on the tag...stamped some Tim images...added a Grungeboard birdcage - used one of my new Alterations :O)) - which was coloured with Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and the a dab of Pumice Stone around the edges and then I cut and curled the cage bars so birdy is not banged up.




I added some Maya Road gems to the base of the cage and then some Idea-ology to the top and to highlight the sentiment, I splodged some Rock Candy Cracklepaint over... I made the bird into a little robin... cos, I looked out of the window as I was making this and a robin was at the bird feeder... thank the lord it wasn't an Albatros, imagine trying to get one of those on a tag!!!
Before I go... please check out the post below.. there is a Blog Hop going on and well worth joining in... I am off to sulk ever so slightly now ROFL TTFN

Just gorgeous tag Hels and I can understand why you're a bit green. I got the last Stampers Sampler at Ally Pally cos there was some totally gorgeous artwork by Wendy in there.
Lucky Linda!

What a lovely tag. Don't worry about Linda going to Ranger. I'm arranging for her tobe arrested for stalking!

You're making me fall in love with this birdie cage and I promised myself I was going to be for the rest of the week (well until Sat!)

Wow I really am in awe of your work ...love your tags and the Mad Hatter work are stunningly clever.
Thanks so much for your kind comments about my patterns and yes I sometimes think that they would make fun stamps ...other times I think 'who am I kidding ...i'm no artist'. How does one get them made into stamps anyway ???? xx
