FCCB Challenge #202 Pinch Me!!

Happy Monday !!

Welcome to my FCCB post !!
This week our challenge is 
Challenge # 202 Pinch Me
Make a project using the colour Green

I have an added twist on my card this week, our sponsor for the challenge Mark's Finest very kindly donated lots of stamp sets to the DT and we get to play to our hearts content forever and ever with them in exchange for using them on our designated weeks
I love them so much they will be popping up everywhere !!

There is a stamp set to give away to one lucky follower who enters our challenge this week !!

My Cricut cut is the fantastic tag and oval from the Artiste cartridge
I also used lots of hand made Cricut stencils ( super cheap - cut out multiple shapes with George and Basic Shapes using the fill to page feature and ink through them - I used tiny circles, circles and diamonds on my tag)

I started by blending inks over the tag and then used home made embossing paste and a brick stencil on the bottom two thirds.
Once it was dry I inked again adding stencils and stamps for a grungy greeny brown look. To brighten it slightly I used some bronze mica spray and the lovely Docraft butterfly stamps which I embossed with white embossing powder

My stamps belong to the PRIMITIVE set which has lots of sentiments, sheep and cows on it in addition to the stamps I used 

I used black Stazon ink and coloured with distress markers drawing on the background and grunging it up, I used a layer of clear embossing powder over the whole oval before attaching it with Pinflair glue

 My daughter is laughing her head off because the pictures make the pigs look stripy ( They so are not !! - much !! )

Please pop over to FCCB and see all the amazing DT creations then join in and post your own project

As always please remember to use and name at least one Cricut cut.
