CVC Challenges - In The Summer Garden

Hi again,  this time I am sharing with you my first project for Country View Challenges this month.  The theme is 'In The Summer Garden' which is very apt as the weather is currently wonderful in the UK.

Here is my finished project

I started off my brayering Magic Moss and Smurf  Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Chalk Paints onto a card blank.

Once this was done, I stencilled flowers from the new PaperArtsy Darcy stencil onto the background, using Lilac for the flower heads.  Once dry, these were highlighted using a white gel pen.

The Tracy Scott and Jo Firth Young stamps were stamped, coloured using Polychromo pencils and then cut out and mounted onto the background.  

Another of Darcy's new stencils were used with Stone paint, again highlighting in white once dry.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment from another set by Jo Firth-Young.

This was so much fun to create.

 Make sure you pop over to the Country View Crafts Challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the design team.

I hope that I have inspired you to create a project for this challenge.  Don't forget, by linking it to the Challenge blog you will be in with a chance to win a gift voucher to spend in the online shop.

Thanks for joining me...….I'll be back with my second project soon.
