Ann made a lucky card for her daughter. She used the Wrinkle-Free Technique to make the background and used the PapillonThe Professor Stamp set and Word Thinlits Die. She stamped the professor’s suit and hat with Shady Lane and Green Oasis

Andrea used gorgeous green shades of Dylusions paint, such as Mushy Peas, Sour Appletini and Polished Jade, to make-over her Dyalog insert book. She also utilized Dina Wakley’s Collage Collective book.

Anna-Karin made a calm art journal page with shades of green and blue. She used the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Stronger Together set for the stamping. The background was colored with Paper Artsy Infusions Colored Stains.

Barbara used green color to create the background of her Idea-ology Framed Panel. She experimented for the first time new Ranger Ink Alloy Gilded together with various Ranger Alcohol inks. Under the flowers, a pattern cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Tiles Hexagons and stamped with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Field Notes. 

Cheiron created a St. Patty’s Snarky cat…complete with green milk using stamps from Snarky Cat, Crazy Things, and Baroque. She used Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Glaze over her background applied with a Distress Embossing Dabber and finished her card with a sentiment stamp from Tiny Text.

Emma created a home decor project to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. She used a vignette box, covered with paper from the Etcetera Paper Stash, before adding a Paper Doll, surrounded by Bouquet Findings dyed with Peeled Paint Distress Spray Stain, a Tim Holtz Vintage Flair Pin and a pot of gold in a Thimble.

Kath decorated a canvas as a gift for a friend who is a keen gardener and shares her birthday with Ireland’s patron saint, St Patrick using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop, Idea-ology Typeset Collage Paper, Layering Stencil Halftone, Mini Layering Stencil Digits to add a subtle little bit o’ green and Distress Embossing Glazes to add texture and shine.

Macarena made a retro card combining greens and browns on her background and used Tim Holtz Faded Type stamps and Tim Holtz Sizzix Retro Type Bigz die.

Maura can’t stop at just a bit of green, as she shows us in her art journal. She used the Ranger Small Creative Journal along with Authentique’s Dublin paper pack, and several of Tim Holtz’s Distress paints like Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover and Mowed Lawn.

Meihsia was inspired to create a watercolored card using Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing Hand Poured Watercolor and Royal Langnickel Xen Watercolor Brush Set on Simon Says Stamp Suzy’s Succulents Watercolor Print
