The Letter V ...

... is for Verdigris!

Hi everyone, long time no tagging - I've had so much going on here that I'm afraid I've been a rubbish tagger! But I love Tag Tuesday and I've really missed you all and now everything is back on an even keel I'm going to jump back in with both feet if that's ok with you ...

So here's my tag for the letter "V" - I flicked through the dictionary for inspiration and decided to have a go at a verdigris effect. Having no idea where to start, I ended up being quite chuffed with the results for a first attempt.


This started off as chipboard shapes glued to scrap card, then I used a combination of heat embossing, painting and sanding back, repeating the process until it looked right and finishing off with Distress Inks and a touch of gilt cream buffed up with my favourite manky old cloth! The dangler was made by glueing the definition of verdigris from an old dictionary to some card and grunging it up with DI.

I'm off to see what everyone else has made now - I always love seeing all the different ideas everyone comes up with!

BTW if you would like to win a gorgeous Rainbow of Ribbons from Scrapbook Fantasies, there's a giveaway on my blog - just leave a comment on this post to enter.

I'm doing the giveaway to celebrate a big event in my life - I finally Tidied My Room! :o) xxx
