Country View Crafts Challenges - Anything but a card

Happy middle of November.

Here is my second project of the month


I decided to create an art panel to add to my wall in my craft room.

I added Grunge Paste through a JOFY PaperArtsy stencil.  

Once dry, I sprinkled some PaperArtsy infusions and reacted with water.  I adore the effects that the infusions create.


I created a skin using a Stamperia mould and cream paste.  Once fully dry I added a few torn strips to my panel.


The frame is a Sizzix Tim Holtz Ornate die which I cut in mount board.  Once added to the panel I then set about with the decoration.

I used Stamperia cotton net to add to the textures.  

I then collaged different elements from my stash, including Ideology 


I literally lost myself in creativity for an afternoon and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I hope that I have inspired you to join in with this month's challenge.  Pop over to the Challenge blog to see how to join in.  Don't forget, you may be in with a chance to win a gift voucher to spend in the online shop.

Thanks for joining me.
Happy crafting!

Country View Crafts Challenges - Anything But A Card

Happy November!

For the first project of this challenge I chose to make a tag.  I haven't decorated a tag for so long.  I had forgotten how much I enjoy them.


I started off by die cutting a tag from the Tim Holtz tag die.


I then embossed some of the images from the Tim Holtz Spring Shadows stamp set.  I used the emboss resist technique.


I swooshed my tag through wilted violet and worn lipstick distress inks and dried the tag thoroughly.  I simply love the effect of this technique.


I stamped, coloured and fussy cut butterflies from a PaperArtsy Tracy Scott stamp set.

To finish I used a 'happy' die cut and added a few gems.

I simply loved creating this tag and it really made me 'happy'.

Thanks for joining me today.

Pop over to the Challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.  I hope I have inspired you to join in with the challenge too - you might be the lucky winner of a gift voucher to spend in the shop too!

Happy crafting!
