Paper Artsy in Shades of Green

Hi Dreamers!
Here I am back from the Heirloom Stamping Show!!  Spent way too much!!  Are you surprised??!!  I will show you what I bought tomorrow.
All the members of the Design Team over on the  Blockheads Blog are showcasing the Lynne Perrella Paper Artsy stamps. I finished up my  project- you may have seen it unfinished on my Workdesk Wednesday post here.  I used some amazing Lynne Perrella Stamps (Paper Artsy)  I used stamps from two sets to create this wall hanging that measures 5 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches.

Materials List:
Crackle Background -Blockheads
Lynne Perrella Paper Artsy Stamps-Pageant (LPC002) and Royalty (LPC007)
Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
Distress Ink Pads-Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss 
Distress Stains- Peeled Paint and Pumice Stone
Neenah Solar White CS
Black CS
Craft Sheet
Mat Board
Black Tulle

Stamp the images on White Cs.  Cut out the smaller images.  Save the small lady for another project.  LOL

Get out your Craft Sheet for this...we are going to get inky.  Place the Distress stains on the Craft sheet with a few squirts of water.  Place the stamped images into the stain.

Ink the Crackle Background stamp with Shabby Shutters DI and spray with water. Stamp. 

Add more color with the other Distress Inks.

Mount all the pieces on Black CS and spray with glimmer mist.  I mounted the piece onto some mat board to make it pretty rigid.  Add the cut out shapes with 3-D Zots.

I added some rhinestones in the corners and wrapped some Black Tulle around the edges.

This was a fun project and love the green, green, greenness of it.  (Wow, greenness is real word.)  Hope you are having a great weekend!
