Smudger Challenge #5

SMUDGER CHALLENGE #5 - vintage and green

I am so pleased to be a part of the new Design Team on the Smudger Challenge Blog.

The Smudger Challenge for the month of August is to create something VINTAGE with a little or lot of GREEN! The prizes for the winners will be a choice of two digital stamps or this cute handmade mini fairy door. YAY!

After much thought, I decided to use the quirky Dr. Death image from Smudgetastic Digis. Please check out the great selection of digis that are available in their store.

I colored the Dr Death image with MS Paint and added some chalks for contrasts. To give my card a vintage feel, I used the cover of an antique book I found on the Graphics Fairy. I colored the book green with MS Paint and chalks. The card is embellished with an amber colored feather, green glitter, black rhinestone and a stick I picked up outside on my daily walk. I added the word "oddity" using my computer. I covered the completed image with light green tulle.

I hope I have inspired you to create something "vintage and green" for the SMUDGER CHALLENGE! Also, please check out the other Design Team samples that are listed on the site.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
