Anything But a Card Challenge 45 Green with Envy

Welcome to March and another challenge at Anything but a Card Challenge blog. This month its Green with Envy. Oy! Green, my least favorite color. So this was a challenge for me. Back in December I had gotten the famous Raskog cart from Ikea for Hanukkah. After putting it together I gathered all my craft paint that I had put in my file cabinet for the move. I separated them into color groups. After i was done and looking at the colors I was like wow I have a lot of green craft paint! (For the record I have a lot of pink craft paint too! LOL) 


So I took a piece of light wight cardstock that was from my stash. it was about 11x11. I glued on some flowers that were from a napkin. I grabbed 3 bottles of craft paints from light to dark. Some I scrapped with a old gift card. Some I used my fingers. I was a green mess. After that dried I took my 2 green Dylusions sprays in Fresh Lime and cut grass and some stencils. I stamped a Dollie stamp from Recollections with a Vivid green ink pad and a Ditto stamp of dots in a green Marvy Matchable ink pad. I then took another stencil and Distress paint in peeled paint.  Finally I took the Dylusions white Linen spay and sprayed it through a circle plastic canvas. After everything was dried I cut it up in 2 postcards size (4x6) and  ATC size cards. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of what the paper looked like before I cut it up. I remembered that I should of done it as I was making the first cut with the paper cutter. 


So this postcard I used Wicked Birthday tamp set from Tiddly Inks. I stamped her with Versafine black ink pad on Kromecoat from Viva Las VegaStamps! I also embossed her with the Ultra High Gloss embossing powder. I colored her with Crayola markers. I stamped the bad to the bone on a piece of scrap of the Kromecoat. I also stamped the heart and cross bones on the postcard. I glued her and the sentiment down. It still needed something so I glued down the trim that I got at Michael's. 


Okay So I had to add some pink! She is Nancy Grew from Krafty Kimmie. I stamped her the same way as the postcard before. I colored her with the same Crayola Markers. I popped her up with foam tape. I stamped the wheres the pink with alphas that I got a Target. Though I wrote the question mark. 


Finally The froggy ATC. I stamped the Mona Frog from Viva Las VegaStamps! on the Kromecoate with Versafine black ink pad and embosing it with the Ultra High Glass embossing powder. To make her green I used 2 green alcohol inks. I glued her on the ATC and then I wrote on a scrap its not easy being green( Come on I had to!) I backed all the paper on cereal box to make it sturdy.
