Judy is hosting today’s challenge, Go Green. In honour of St. Patrick’s day this coming Saturday, we would like to see your green creations. They do not have to be monochromatic, only green, but we would like to see the major part of your creation is green. Please don’t just stick a leaf in the corner and think it qualifies! We also don’t want St. Patrick’s day themed cards/projects unless the majority of them is green, as the challenge is about the colour green.
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Go Green theme.
My card was made as a bon voyage card for my nephew’s girlfriend who went back to Canada and all the images came from a Debbi Moore cd. Sometimes, when you don’t have time to do the toppers and backgrounds from scratch a cd image can be super helpful.
I used a 6 x 6 base card, and onto that put a black mat. I layered the base image onto the mat and stuck the ribbon across it 2/3 of the way down. I cut the topper out and matted it onto the card using foam pads so it was raised. It hasn’t come out very well, but I coloured the clock faces with some clear wink of stella pen to give it some shimmer.
I used some bakers twine to hang my guardian angel charm, and attached it to the card using hot glue, and covered the centre of the bow with a flower gem.
Lastly, I stuck 3 gems in the top right hand corner of the card.
Good luck with the challenge – I look forward to seeing everybody’s entries!
