Love me some green

Yup you read correctly – I love green – especially vibrant lime green; so when I saw the recent batch of challenges that I get via email, I knew I had to play with 5 of them and I have 1 card that I think suits all 5.

I used a stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey called ‘Dance life’ and she was perfect for an ink smooshed background that I think looks slightly ombre, is certainly monochrome, clearly green, clean & simple and uses a stamp set I’d forgotten about and is a dress – there all challenge criteria met!


I used Stampin Up card stock in Lucky Limeade, Garden Green and some water-colour paper. I smooshed Tim Holtz’s Twisted Citron ink onto my mat, spritzed it with water and then put my card piece into the wet ink, careful to only get the ink around the stamped image.

I think she’s truly beautiful.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Hey, thanks for adding the awesome card at SOS this week! It totally is my style, and I just love it! In case I never told you, I love the name of your blog, then when I just was looking at your watermark on your pic, I notices Tinstar is an anagram of your name! Whattt? So cool! Anyway, love your crafty style, and I need to go make sure I am following you. Cheers.

    1. Thanks Mimi – do you remember having those pencil cases with the name panels as a kid? Each weekend I spent with my dad I’d go to school with my name mixed up and Tinstar has just stuck!
