Welcome! It’s time for another Colour Me! challenge post. This week the challenge is to create a project using a mossy green.
As I’ve mentioned before, the Colour Me! challenge colours are based on Stampin’ Up! colours. I personally don’t own very much SU! product, so I choose supplies in my stash that most closely match. In this case, I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. You can watch my video tutorial below, or on my YouTube channel.
I created a fun hillside background for my bear by applying the Distress Ink in an uneven way for a more dimensional effect. I also used some mica-based eye shadow to rub into the Distress Ink while it was still wet. I found this powder at my Dollar Tree and use it as a great substitute for Perfect Pearls.
For my cloudy background, I used my favorite embossing paste alternative–acrylic caulking–and a stencil that I cut using my Silhouette Portrait machine.
