Country View Crafts Challenges - Letters and/or Numbers

Hello again, Happy St. David's Day to you all.  I cannot believe that it is March - please tell me where the month is going!

Today is teh launch of a new challenge at Country View Crafts - the topic is Letters and/or numbers.  I had so many ideas this month!

Here is my first project

I created a wrinkle free distress background using Distress Oxide inks.  I ensured that this was dried thoroughly before I started the next stage.

I used PaperArtsy Hotpicks 1604 for this project.  I stamped the large numbers in Shadow Grey Archival.  The small numbers were stamped using Jet Black Archival.

I created a background using PaperArtsy Infusions.  I don't think I will ever tire of these.  I adore them.  Again, I dried this thoroughly before moving on to stamp the large JOFY flower.  

I heat set the ink and then had fun playing with my white gel pen.  I also added a scribbled border to the main mat background.

To finish I mounted the card using black card and added some dimension to the flower.

I had so much fin creating this.  

I hope that you will join in with the Challenge this month.  Don't forget, if you enter the challenge over on the Country View Crafts Challenge blog you will be in with a chance of winning a voucher to use online.

Thanks for joining me today.  I always love reading your comments so hope that you will let me know that you have popped by.

Have a great weekend.
