What better way to start a New Year than with a new challenge over at Country View Crafts.
After so much Christmas crafting I wanted to create something totally unrelated. Here is my project for the month
I wanted to use some of my 'go to' products.
I started by cutting a panel of card stock and distress the edges. Next, I stamped the female from
Sara Naumann PaperArtsy stamp set. I stamped this in Memento ink and then coloured the image using alcohol markers.
The next stage of my project was to colour a card blank using Distress Oxides in Blue China, Walnut Stain and Fossilized Amber. I flicked water over the ink to activate it and then edged the card using walnut stain.
I randomly stamped text into the background using walnut stain ink. I then added the image to a gold panel and topped it to the card blank.
To finish I stamped a border and sentiment from Emma Godfrey PaperArtsy mini stamp set.
I really enjoyed creating this project, especially after me having to spend months with seasonal crafting.
