Country View Crafts Challenges- Blue & Green

It's that time of the month already!  I don't actually know where July went! 

The new challenge has launched over at Country View Crafts Challenges.  The theme for this month is Blue & Green - two of my favourite and most used colours.

Here is my project for this challenge

I started by colouring a panel of watercolour card using Distress Oxides in Broken China and Peeled Paint.  I know I keep going on about these but they really are fabulous!

I then sprinkles some water to activate the oxides.  This, to me, gave it a lovely glistening summer look.  I then stamped various grasses and coloured them with Distress Oxides in Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover.

Using PaperArtsy JOFY 49, I then stamped the larger flowers and  coloured them in using the same Oxide colours.

To finish, I inked around the edge using Walnut Stain and then mounted it onto a panel of navy card stock.

This photo shows how wonderful the Oxides react with water.
