Good morning and a very happy 2017. Hopefully we are now free of the curse of 2016 - a very good year to leave behind! Of course it's now time for a new challenge at Country View Crafts, and to ease us in nice and gently the challenge is Anything Goes.
So a new year means it's time to start again with all the birthdays, anniversaries, and other occasions that need a card, and this year I'm going to be ready - oh yes! (well maybe) :-) I've always said that I work better under pressure lol but occasionally it would be nice to have a card ready when I need one.
This lovely Sheena set happened to fall into my basket during the recent Advent sale, ( I don't know how this happened as I was in Lanzarote at the time) so I thought it was a good time to use it.
Sheena also has a DVD where she uses these stamps so I tried the technique with masking fluid and it does work beautifully. To colour the background I used Distress Inks.
The cat, table, and bowl have been coloured with Distress Markers
The water droplets have been made with Glossy Accents, and I've added a few sequins just because. The seam binding has also been coloured with the same inks.
So get yourself a mince pie and join in with our challenge - it has to be better than taking the decorations down and playing in the dust :-)
Have a wonderful New Year, and thanks very much for looking x
