I need cake

I was sure I was right that the hat would fit on the chap on Elena's new stamp set.
Please pop over to today's Country View Crafts Projects blog to see if I was right!

Things with Wings

Can you believe it? It's July already! The new month brings a new challenge at Country View Crafts Challenges and it's... Things with Wings.
For my first project I altered a page in my Creative Dyary. It was one of those pages with a preprinted image on and, although it's a cool image, I wanted it to be part of the background. Using very thin layers of Snowflake, Beach Hut and Limelight paint I gave the page a facelift and then added stamped images on top (including a bird for he is a winged thing!) Then I took my pencils and added colours - lots of blues, yellows, oranges, pinks and purples as well as some washy tape and highlights of Snowflake.
I hope you like my page and you join in with us this month - you may win a prize!

Love Heart

For my second project for this month's Heart theme at Country View Crafts Challenges I have made a page in my Dylusions Dyary. The heart is a Wendy Vecchi stencil (with PaperArtsy paints on black card) so I added some of my favourite leaf and flower stamps from Wendy too. I added a Dylusions stencils in the background and some washi tape. Pop over here to see it!

With Love

The months are whizzing by and already it's June and time for another new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges. This month the theme is Hearts. For my submission I painted an MDF plaque and 'bumped' some hearts in the background. I covered an Art Part heart in red ink and then layered clear embossing powder on top (I made three layers) and over heated it slightly to create pits and a bloom on the finish (I like that mottled look!). In the pits I rubbed gold paint to add highlights. I very much hope you'll join in with us this month!
