It's E for Emeralds at Alphabet Challenge.

Hi Folks,

Its time for another letter at Alphabet Challenge and this time it's 'E' and the challenge is to use Emerald Green on your project.
Not a colour I would normally use - but  that's what challenges are for - to take us out of our comfort zones!
My image ' Madam Berth'  by Stamps Happen was coloured with Promarkers, I also stamped a LaBlanch swirl down the right-hand side with a mix of Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint DI's. The background  is an old K&Co paper and a cream embossed panel that was distressed with the same DI's, not sure what make the folder is, but they were 2 for £3.99 at GNP.  Bargain!!

We would love you to join us and show us your 'Emeralds' and if you need any inspiration, the rest of the DT have some wonderful creations to show, so please pop over here to take a look

I am entering this at
  Paper Crafting Journey - Monochromatic
  Rhedd &amp ;Rosies challenge - Monochromatic

Thats it for now, and I would just like to say 'thank you' for all the lovely positive comments I've received lately, especially as I've been such a neglectful visitor, just managed to keep up on DT comments!
We had a very positive day last Saturday,we are now organised with the 4 Bridesmaids dresses,  just wish she would make her mind up on Stationary, I think she thinks I can do it in a weekend!!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Avril xx

What a fabulous image! I love the french inspired look of it, and lady images like this one are so decorative! Emerald - what a tricky color to work with - but you did a beautiful card using this color!

From the look of it it doesn't look like you not comfortable with the Emerald green. It is stunning, I love Vintagie look.

I'm not a lover of green much either but this is gorgeous Avril! It all works so beautifully.
My turn to apologise because I haven't been around much either! I think we all understand and just enjoy each other's visits as and when they come! Sounds like preparations are going well even if some things need finalising!
Have a good weekend.

Avril, this is showstopping! Emerald is all the rage right now!

Good luck with the stationary! It sounds like it's time for you to have a "come to Jesus" meeting (as we say) with that girl so you aren't left in a stress pit at the last minute! (What do you mean, no one asked me what I thought! LOL!)
