Glorious Green Embellishment!
Still finding some crafting time, last evening made up this little Tando printer tray. The set comes with three top pieces so you can make it as deep as you want, for dimension all three pieces were used here.
The back/base is solid Tando and has been covered with some Graphic 45 Steampunk paper after the paper had been sprayed with Green Glimmer Mist. Viva Inca Gold in Green and Gold used to colour the edges and top parts, the little stand that comes with the set coloured with just Green Inca Gold. Then came the fun; part using stripped corrugated card and the TH cogs and gear die some embellishments cut out. Then sprayed with more Glimmer mist 3 different shades of green and one coffee colour. While they were drying I dug into my bag of scrap watch and clock parts. Some parts used to enhance the image, others decorate the top frame. A mock optician's eye glass has been used on the bottom left. While rummaging a couple of butterflies and a dragonfly previously stamped and embossed on painted paper found the light of day, albeit electric light. The two butterflies adorn the frame while the dragonfly has landed on the stand. Another discovery is an old scrabble tile. The now dry corrugated cogs fixed in place and some green paper flowers added.
Green is my favourite colour or colour family and I include Gold in that! So this week's Gingersnap Challenge is right up my street with a theme title 'Glorious Greens!'
Also very much in my mind when making this was The Stamp Man challenge where the theme this week is 'Embellish it'. Think this might just qualify, but I have a complaint about the DT there. A couple of you have used a wonderful bodice stamp on your samples and it is hurting my already groaning bank account!
Prairie Fairy Fridays, have a challenge looking for anything but a card.
Inspire me Friday's, always a fabulous fun party
