50 shades of .... green

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing a journal page which I made as an inspiration piece for the monochromatic challenge over at Country View Challenges

and here's how:

First I cut a piece of watercolour paper to 6" x 6" and then rubbed this new AALL & Create stencil called 'Alphanumeric' with Distress Oxide inks. I used Peeled paint and Twisted Citron. I then spritzed with water and put it onto my paper. 

This is what it looks like dry. 

Next I stamped the background with the same colours ink. 

I have had this stamp set by Katzelkraft for ages and have never used it, so today I thought this was as good a day as any to get it out. I stamped this person (?) on the background to get the little bubbles above his head and onto a scrap or watercolour paper. 

I coloured him with Distress Inks, also Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron and coloured pencils to get a little more variation in the greens. 

After adding some washi tape, green of course, I glued him down. 

Next I stamped one of the sentiments of this AALL & Create stamp set with Versafine Clair ink 'Shady Lane'. 

Ad an afterthought I added some circles from the AALL & Create set and the Shady Lane ink. I think it looked better without.. lol  I added the sentiment and used a green coloured pencil to add a line underneath the word strips and that finished it off. 

Thank you for stopping by today. 


  1. What a great way of doing a background! x

  3. What a cool card, Corrie! The guy is colored perfectly and your background is gorgeous as usual.
    Have a wonderful week, I hope the weather is better than here.

  4. Ha - this is just delightful...I'm loving all that green, and the sentiment cracks me up. Well done, you playful creator!
