Good morning and happy Monday! It's time for me to share my second 'In the Summer Garden' piece with you for this months Country View Crafts challenge.
I started by finger painting with my favourite Fresco Paints. I used Tracy Scott's second set and also Dolly Mix. This is my new favourite way to paint, and I learned it taking one of Tracy's classes.
Then I stamped all over with Tracy's PaperArtsy's flower stamps. Just need to fussy cut them - shoot me now!
Two episodes of New Tricks later and they are all done! I've layered them up on some foam pads.
I've stamped my most favouritist (this really is a word - I checked!) 'happy birthday' stamp from JOFY14 then arranged my flowers. I need to make a box now to send it in (or I could just hand it over - sticking out of an envelope) - only joking, though that could work...
I really enjoyed making this apart from the cutting out, but 'It's allright, it's OK, doesn't really matter if you're old and gray'.... It's really hard for me to cut out and watch the TV at the same time 'cos I need to wear my reading glasses to see the scissors, or my fingers, so I look like a demented meerkat bobbing up and down looking over my glasses... just a small insight into my exciting world of bad eyesight and even worse telly!
Anyway, I hope you like my card, and that you join in with our fun challenge and the chance to win £20 to spend in the store. Have a wonderful day, and thanks very much for looking
