Gothic Green

I have a sister inlaw who's a bit of a Goth, and she also love green, so naturally for her birthday I had to try and make a green gothic type of card.
Linda's Birthday Card
Colours: Wild Wasabi & Basic Black. Stamps: Grunge Rock & Extreme Elements.
Big Shot: Top note die & Vintage Wallpaper. Extras: Crochet Ribbon, string, Black ink refill, Eyelets & saftey pin.
1.) Cut a Top Note from Wild Wasabi card stock. 2.) Brayer Black ink onto Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, then add wasabi top note & run through big shot. 3.) Add Versa Mark ink all over top note, then sprinkle with clear embossing powder & heat. 4.) Cut top note in half, & Sponge Black ink around edges of top note. 5.) Use Crop-a-dile to punch holes & add eyelets. 6.) Mix several drops of black ink refill to small dish of water, mix in crochet ribbon, microwave for approx 30 secs to help fasten colour. 7) .Repeat dying process with cotton string. Allow to dry before using (a heat tool can seed-up drying). 8.) Stamp and sponge back ground. 9.) Thread string through eyelets, stick top note down using dimensionals, one half at a time. 10.) Tie a knot in crochet ribbon, add a small saftey pin, & stick down using glue dot. 11.) Add a greeting to finish.
