Make It Count

Good morning and happy Sunday. The current challenge over at the Paper Artsy blog is Seth Apter's new fresco paints. Now I don't have Seth's new paints, so I've had to join in using his old ones!

 I started by brayering a sheet of A4 with the first 2 sets of Seth's paints.
 If I had to pick favourites they would definitely be Key Lime and Green Patina. They are such beautiful shades of green.

 Then I stamped just about every stamp from his first 4 PaperArtsy sets.

 I also made a tag with the same stamps, paints, and LOTS of embossing powder.

I had to add a little bit of stenciling and stitching, and there's also some stamped wooden slices.

All done! I love my bow - even if I can only tie a decent one upside down lol. This was fun to make, I had no idea where I was going with this one, I just got out my ever growing 'Seth Box' and had a good play. There's loads of sport on the TV at the moment so no-one even notices that I'm gone ;-)

I'm also entering this into Craft Stamper's February's Take it make it challenge

All of the stamps and paints can be found at the PaperArtsy store, and also here at Country View Crafts

Have a very happy day, and thank very much for looking.
