Go Green Challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog


Well hello there all my crafty Peeps! I think winter is starting to loosen it’s icy grasp on us…it’s feeling much warmer and I am excited for Spring to arrive! So it’s perfect timing to announce a new challenge at CHACB….Go Green!

Use this color board as inspiration for your green challenge. Make a challenge which has green as the predominate color. Use the other colors in this color board as your accent colors. You may make any type or theme of project that you wish. You do NOT have to use all of the colors represented here, but green must be the star of your project! There must be some green in your vast hoard…dig it out!

green boardI created a sweet little shadowbox frame….and whats better for a Spring frame than Once Upon a Springtime from Graphic 45???

IMG_5003This frame was already painted white and had four shadowbox compartments.

IMG_5156-001I used painted Dusty Attic chipboard to act as a vine and loaded up it with moss and ferns like every magical fairy forest should have then added a combination of fussy cut flowers, handcrafted flowers and gem like flowers.

IMG_5159Loads of flowers and ferns for this corner. I used lots of foam spacers to elevate the images inside the shadow box sections.

IMG_5159This cheeky little fairy is giving her froggy prince a big ol smooch.  I’ve given them a little star accent and fussy cut flowers and butterflies.

Okay that’s all for my project….I encourage you to visit the rest of the team to see their Go Green Inspiration..I can tell you it’s fabulous!!!!

Amber, Christy, Debbie, Donna, Glenda, Gloria, Kathy, Pam, Teresa, Wendy.

Now it’s your turn to get your craft on and create a Go Green Inspired project and link up with us at CHACB to play along!

Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
