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.
