Shades of Green

A very quick post - a tag for two challenges:

Just for Fun - Shades of Green, and
Gingersnap Creations - GC118 - Crimpers



I stamped Tim Holtz' Birdsong four times using different green inks and then made a  collage with them which I then covered in crackle paint.  I mounted this onto the tag which had been painted with distress stains.
I inked up some aluminium foil and die cut two leaves which I then crimped.
I also crimped the top and bottom of the tag.

Inks used:
Peeled Paint & Antique Linen Distress Stains
Versamagic Pesto, Forest Moss DI, Versafine Olympia Green, Memento Bamboo
Lettuce alcohol ink

Thanks for visiting my wee blog.
