Monthly Challenge: Go Green--A Color Challenge
This month the website "Inspiration Journal" has a color challenge. The challenge is to make a monochromatic project that is green or mostly green. I chose to make a tag. I used a piece of water color paper and cut it to measure 7" by 3". I ran it through my Big Kick machine to dry emboss it with a Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fade called the Patchwork set. Then using my Inkssentials tool I colored the tag with Ranger's Peeled Paint, Pine Needles, and Bundled Sage. I distressed the edges with a little Rusty Hinge ink. I used my large grunge board wings that were first painted with silver acrylic paint and then distressed with the same inks that I used on the tag. I glued the wings on the back of the tag. I cut the cards out of DCWV "The Timeless Type Stack" paper, I also cut some of the other embellishments out of this paper. The three dimensional stickers at the bottom are made by K & Company. The centerpiece of this tag is a domino that has been colored with alcohol inks, stamped with a girl's image (Stampers Anonymous) using StazOn black ink. I used silver foil around the edge and burnished it. A hole is drilled in the bottom of the domino in order to attach a jump ring that holds a tiny hand (Alpha Stamps). The metal wings are Tim Holtz. I sealed the image with Glossy Accents, let it dry and attached it to the tag with glue dots. I attached a Swivel Clasp (Idea-ology) to the top and added a couple of ribbons. That is about as green as I can get!
