Lost Coast Designs - Challenge 50 shades of GREEN

For this color challenge I brought out my pallet of green to the foreground and used some of my fave LCD rubber stamps for some Mail Art inspired pieces.

An array of inks by brands Memento, Kaleidacolor, distressink, ancient page and staz-on. The rubber stamps by LCD: art angel, chess king and chess queen.
50 shades of green
I did some ink testing prior to making my project below. Kaleidacolors is one of my fave brands for multicolor ink pads.

I ended up choosing the Art doll, the squiggles border and the small doll face rubber stamps. The background is made with dylusions cut grass spray and ranger distress ink/stains (shabby shutters and peeled paint). Then used brick stencils with green paint to create some texture. Stamped the Art doll with olive green Staz-On on the envelope. I used Memento cottage ivy to stamp the squiggle border like sun rays in the top right corner. The small doll face I stamped on a 1 1/2 inch neon green sticker and used that face as a sun. Left some space for an address to send out as mail art :)
I hope this inspires you to play along with the challenge. You can win a 20$ gift certificate to spend on Lost Coast Designs rubber stamps.
