Green Gypsy Tag – August Challenge ”Go Green”

Hey everyone! Cathy Frailey here with a beautiful gypsy tag in shades of mesmerizing green! The tag was created with inspiration of our August Challenge “Go Green”.  I used a mix of Tattered Angels paints and Canvas Corp Brands papers & trim to create a fun layered tag that can be used for decor or as a gift for the gypsy friend in your life! The embossed papers take color beautifully and provide nooks and crannies for the glimmer to settle!

 

Step 1
There’s really only 1 big step to this and it’s painting your papers with the Tattered Angels paints! Use a water brush to mix the colors to create different tones of green. Let that glimmer settle in the nooks and crannies! I didn’t color the whole flower paper – the ivory color makes a nice contrast!
step 2

 

Now layer your embellishments! I used the Don’t Cry – Make Art cutout from the stash pacque which fit perfectly across the top of my tag. Then I just trimmed off excess.
Step 3

 

I used the seersucker paper as a backdrop for the gypsy picture to add some contrast as well as putting a small strip on top of the fringe. I also went around the edges with green ink.
Step 4

 

The colors are gorgeous on the embossed paper! Look at the shimmer.

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
