On the forum, every month we have a guest designer who sets a challenge.... this month's guest is KATHY, who has challenged us to create GREEN STEAM PUNK......
I have reused a 10''x12'' canvas, and loads of recycled stuff..... the birds and bug are die-cut from cola cans, the cogs from the thick card on the back of paper pads, the black flowers from packaging..... the embossed metal strip is from a window blind. The tissue i stamped on is from a shoe box....so not only is this a green coloured piece it is a GREEN piece. The stamped image is from DE-STEMPELWINKEL.
Have fun hopping.... come and check out the forum..... its a wonderful group to belong to.
I shall enter the following challenges......
