well the challenge was so far out of my comfort zone, but i went for it sizzling summer colours and all! We may not have seen much summer sizzle here but you can always make up for that in summery colours for your entry..
I started by applying texture paste (white) you could also use grunge paste through Dylusions number stencil..then when dry got inky!
.So I started with pure sunshine, bubblegum pink and funky fushia Dylusions sprays....spritzed my piece of mountboard with water and got spritzing!. I dried and then dabbed into some of the excess on the craft sheet until I was happy.
Then came layers of spritzing water through stencils for faux bleaching..
I then added stamping using mixed media set and picked raspberry and wild honey distress inks...to create layers of interest...boy this is so bright for me...almost scaring myself!!
the flowers were cut using tattered floral die and cut from a piece of cardstock coloured with same Dylusions sprays..
I edged them in walnut stain ( back to comfort zone on that colour!) and then added a rusty bell centre. Now for the stems I curled some fab paper coated wire i found and added some fab idea-ology flowers...so I did use some home comforts..
Make sure you pop across and see the other DT members fab makes and remember you have a whole month to play and could be the lucky winner of a £20 voucher for country view crafts or be picked for our top three or special mention and get a GD spot x
