Country View Challenges - Anything But Cute

I hope you are enjoying the inspiration from the Design Team so far this month.

Here is my second project for the Challenge

I started by brayering a panel with Buff Fresco Finish Chalk Paint.

I then lightly pressed paints from Seth Apter's Limited Edition paints for PaperArtsy onto my dry panel.  This is a technique that I learnt in a Seth Apter workshop a couple of years ago - so simple, and so effective. 

Once dry, I stamped various Seth stamps in the same colours.  I added some highlighting to some of the stamping.

Next, I die cut 3 Seth Apter dies .  These were then coloured in Mahogany and Midnight Fresco Finish.  I added further stamping to the star.

The die cuts were then added to the panel.

I stamped three words from a PaperArtsy Lin Brown stamp set.  I added white highlighting using a gel pen.

To finish I added a game spinner and a Tim Holtz brad.

This was a really fun project to make and I love the colours!  

Do pop over to the blog and see the rest of the amazing inspiration this month.  And it would be great if you joined in with the challenge - I always love seeing how we have inspired you.

Thanks for joining me........
