Soda can Embellishment with Generation Green Colorant















I made this card for 2 Sketches 4 You challenge #36. I also wanted to demonstrate a use for Creatively-Green product Generation Green Colorant, which is an earth friendly product.

My pumpkin, which is a piece of soda can, is cuttlebugged and then die cut. Then I took my yellow and red Generation Green colorant and combined them to make an orange color. I then sponged it on to the aluminium from the soda can and let it dry. I then combined the blue and yellow to make a green and painted the leaf. Once again I combined colors to create a brownish color for the stem. I scrapped off a bit of the green on the leaf to make it look aged.


The stitched background was created by using Angels Landing's pierced digital background. I poked the holes and used four different colors of embroidery floss.

I hope that you are inspired to try this.
