Country View Crafts Challenges - Numbers and/or Letters

Hello again.  I hope you are enjoying the wonderful projects so far this month - and we are only half way through.

Here is my second project for the Challenge

I started off by using scraps of card to die cut random letters from the Tim Holtz WordPlay die.

I've had this die since it was released.  I never bore of it!

I randomly glued these the letters to a card mat and then cut the bits that were hanging off the edge.  

I then painted all over the mat using Fresco Acrylic paints - this is one of the Tracy Scott release paints.

To create a more vintage feel I added 'A Little Bit Jaded' PaperArtsy infusions.  I simply love this background.  I almost wanted to leave it like this - lol!

I created a circle of Pea Coat paint and then used my stamp platform to stamp the large PaperArtsy Tracy Scott flower.

Leaving the stamped image on the platform, I then set about painting the flower, stamping the flower using the platform again to re-stamp the lines.  

This is one of my favourite things to do - it means that I can use opaque paints to colour detailed images.  

Once dry, I cut the flower out.

To finish, I layered the card up, using doilies and a Tim Holtz quote.  

I loved the finished card.  I already have a recipient in mind too.

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the Challenge for this month - I love seeing your creations.

Do leave me a comment  to let me know that you have stopped by - they always cheer me up to know that you have taken the time to read my posts.

Happy crafting!
