Good Girls Go Green

Hello.  Welcome.  There are a couple of colour challenges I wanted to join.  I have recently been enjoying making monochrome cards so, despite thinking this needed a bit of red, I persevered and ended up with a green girl, holding a green cat, against a green background.  

I stamped High Hopes Annie with Her Cat, masked, coloured the background with 3 shades of green distress ink and then stamped Unity's Whimsey Borders with green ink.  Then I coloured Annie and her cat with about 8 shades of green distress inks and my waterbrush.  I used a green card base and added a green polka dot washi tape border.  I stamped Rubber Dance Warm Greetings sentiment and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  Maybe not 50. but certainly many shades of green.  I painted the background with W&N Iridescent Watercolour Medium, to add to the festive feel.  Made it a little difficult to photograph and also gave added texture cos the paper wrinkled a bit.  Hopefully it will be flat again by tomorrow!!  Thanks for visiting.  Hugz

  1. Must admit, the thought of using just on color is daunting. You did a great job of making it happen. Nice job.

    Hugs and Blessings

  2. Thank you for sharing your artwork with us at the Stampinback Challenge!!

  3. Love your "Good Girls Go Green," Gail! I love monochromatic artwork, so this is really up there for me! Well done!

  4. Cute! And she is many beautiful shades of green. : ) Great job on the monochromatic theme; it can be hard to pull it off. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

  5. It's not easy being green... at least that's what Kermit used to say! Well done sticking to the monochromatic!

  6. It is a challenge to do only one color, isn't it. It's all about building light and dark. Great effort. Thanks for sharing her with us at The House That Stamps Built.

  7. What a cute green girl:) Thanks for joining our challange at Scrappiness:)
