Green Challenge

Green as in the colour  :) is what they want to see over at Creative Accents Challenge blog.   And below is the gorgeous incentive photo! 

So I dug into my stash of stamped and started bits that I'm trying to 'Accomplish' something with and found this little fairy that I must have coloured some time ago!  I've actually got my stash down to a small drawer  :)

The background is a page from a magazine, modge podged, painted with gesso, colour blocked with bits of ripped paper and sponged with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress inks and stamped with Inkadinkado flourishes, then adhered to black cardstock.  All the cardstock is SU!  Embellishments are from my stash  :)   This card is 5" x 5 1/2".

Also, I finally finished another mini, pocket book.  Perfect for the little dancer in your life  :) 
The Designer paper, lined black cardstock for the tags and the sticker accents are all Creative Memories. 

A peek inside.  The 'Love' heart is one that I made from femo, stamped, sponged the edges and added a wee pink gem--all the bling is from my stash.  Lots of pretties in this little book!

The back.  Lots of pretty ribbon and pink tulle on the Bind-It-All binding and the five tags that fit into the pockets .

Thanks for coming by and please be sure to leave a comment so I can come to your blog and say hello as well--I love to see what everyone is making  :)
