Inspirational #212: Green With Envy

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #212 - Green With Envy

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 11:59 PM U.S. Central time.

This is Drea hosting this week's Inspirational! Our theme this week is Green With Envy. Incorporate the color green into your stamping with inks, mists, watercolors, pencils, markers, or embossing powder. You can use neutrals such as black, white, brown, cream, silver or gold, but no other colors. Please indicate in your description how and where you used your stamping!

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here

Here is my project based on our theme this week:

    I started by stamping the large image using Charming Forest onto some cream cardstock, which has a linen texture, and colored it with some watercolors. For the moose and deer, I used Majestic Mountain, and for the trees and grass, I used Mountain Scenery. The grass was embossed in green, and then I machine stitched under it,  along with the border of the large image. I distressed all of the edges of my stamping, and added some gesso, cheesecloth, and mists to the background. 

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!!


Are you an inspiration? 

Inspiration Projects - After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational. 

Each artist whose project is chosen receives a special Inspiration Badge they can display on their blog - and we'll showcase these projects each Monday following the end of the Inspirational!
