Stampotique Challenge #138

Hello all,

I love green and am so glad there are many challenges out there at the moment that are focusing on the colour due to St Patrick's Day earlier in the week. Thank you to the Irish.

So I have decided to play along with a challenge I found via France Papillon's blog, the Stampotique Designers Challenge. For challenge #138, the predominant colour must be green and the use of stamps is also a must for your project.

Here is my submission:

The stamps I used and some close-ups:

The finished size is 6" x 8". The base is some cereal cardboard I cut to size. I really wanted a smaller project so that I could experiment with using serviettes on the background. I firstly came across the use of serviettes to add layers by Jane Davenport, but Gayle Price uses it more so and in a different way to stunning effect.
The lower left close-up photo shows the underlying layer of serviettes. I love the subtle effect it gives.

You can read more about the challenge rules HERE. You have until the end of March to get your green on!

Thank you for coming by.

  7. Glad you found us through France's blog, Zeneva! I can see that you love green as much as I do! Love how you used Dyan's leaf stamp to create a bit of a border, then added "real" flowers. Totally brilliant in my book! Thanks so much for participating in the Stampotique Designers' "green" challenge this month! Come back!

  8. Totally beautiful! You have created a mini-garden here and it's gorgeous! I have heard of that technique with the serviette's too....great background ;)

  9. Love, love , love your foliage layers ! So much beautiful colour and depth. Thank you for the little "plug" too, you are sweet.

  10. Very beautiful! Yes Gayle is one of my favourite scrapbooking artists too - she is fabulous! This is such a pretty creation Zeneva.
