Green Graffiti

I was totally blown away by Agnieszka's gorgeous Monogram card using green sprinkles. It reminded me of the cool Moss Graffiti that people have been doing (what did we do before Pinterest‽) Both are on my "Must Make" Pinterest board, and this is first project inspired by both.


I cut the letters out on my Cricut using the Cursive cartridge, ran them face-down through my sticker machine, and covered them with green Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge.

For the fence, I embossed kraft paper using the Woodgrain Impression Plate from a•muse studio. I bought it via a•muse consultant Chris Franco and she's been so wonderful about answering my questions! Like when I used this Impression Plate for the first time last night, and didn't make my stack right and ended up bending the plate way too much! I freaked out and emailed her...she got right back to me and helped me out, and happily the plates are made quite well and mine has bent back into a more usable angle!

I cut the embossed piece into 1/2 inch strips, notched them, added dimension with TH Vintage Photo distress ink, and added some "nail holes" with a ball-tip embossing tool.

I was inspired by the Strips of Color/Pattern challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. This is about as CAS as I get, I guess! I'm also entering this into the Sparkle & Shine challenge at Dilly Beans.

Do look up Moss Graffiti ... the recipe is basically sugar, dairy culture & moss, and folks are doing really beautiful things with it. Next time I find moss in the yard, I just might have to try it myself!


Thank you for visiting,
