Sunday Stampers Week 220 - GREEN

Hello lovely blog friends

This week over at Sunday Stampers ( our resident host, the talented Hels has set the challenge as Green based on Green Tambourine.

I am not fond of green at the best of times but I was looking at Country View Crafts blog and saw a design that Gabrielle had posted and it was using my newest set of Tim Holtz stamps.  I was at a bit of a loss how to use the stamps and she gave me the inspiration.  Now, Hels, you wanted Green and boy oh boy, you are getting a lot of green here:

I decided to make a journal, nothing like Gabrielle's but I wanted to make something that I might, one day, use.  The dragonfly is stamped twice and decoupaged.  The journal itself is hardback (Zutter from my stash) and has 20 lovely clean white pages in it.  I bound it together by punching holes with my Crop-A-dile and added ribbon to hide the rings - should have used my binding machine but it was stuck in the back of my cupboard........

The paper is BoBunny and the edges are distressed with Mowed Lawn DI and I coloured the ribbon with Dylusions Fresh Lime ink spray.  The dragonfly is coloured in a mixture of the Fresh Lime and also Dylusions Vibrant turquoise - wow are those colours strong!!

Hope you like the green Hels!

If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them all and I will always do my best to return the compliment.  Crafty hugs, Anne x
