First challenge 2018

First challenge in 2018 is on Viva Las Vegastamps Challenge blog and this is what I made for it:

Had a lot of trouble entering my own blog, somehow is was logged to the wrong email address.
I just found that out, and was able to change it and now it is working again, phew...

I started with 2 greens distress oxide with water. Some black & white accents, markmaking and ofcourse the lovely stamp.

The inspiration:
We'd like you to pull deep down and bring forth your muse! Show us your face... real or whimsical, use greens of any hue, black & white. Be inspired by bold patterns, circles, dots, crosses, mark making, hatches, grungy, distress, layers & more. Mary Vogel Lozinak's images are a great way to start your year of stamping.
