Country View Challenges - Hearts

This month, Hazel has chosen the theme of Hearts for the Country View Crafts challenge.

Here is my entry

I started by creating a Gelli print background using Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints and mini stencils.  I even got a bit carried away and made a few....though some turned out better than the others!

I then set about using one of my favourite (and most used) sets of Paper Artsy stamp sets.  I stamped the heart and coloured it using several different colours of pencil.

I started to construct the card.  The card blank was covered with black card  and the Gelli print centred.  I drew around parts of the print and added scribbling.

To finish, I stamped a quote from Tim Holtz Life Quotes.

So, there you go.... the finished card.

Pop on over to Country View Crafts and see the amazing projects created by my fellow DT members. 

I hope I have inspired you to join in with the challenge this month.  Don't forget that  there is a gift voucher up for grabs for one lucky person.

Thanks for looking.....
