Today I have a little candy for you - just leave a comment on todays post, be a follower and I'll draw a winner on 1st June - what can you win - its a stamp and die set from sizzix:
Today I want to share with you a piece of messy art that i so enjoyed making - I got my distress paints and inks out and had lots of fun. I followed a sketch from Scrap 365 -
Here's what I did:
I started out with a plain white piece of paper and added distress paints in blues and browns to a craft mat - spritzed with water and swooshed the paper through. Once dry I added festive berrie DI and filled in many of the white spaces. Next I used DI to create the other bars of paper and stamped one with CB honey bee stamps. Then I used my cut pieces of potato to stamp blue stars - in distress paint, and brown hexagons - in ink from an ink pad. Next I did some more stamping on the background to create the smaller hexagons and also the bees. I followed the sketch and put the layout together then fussy cut some flowers that I had stamped and added the title. Such fun! I loved making this! The picture is, of course, my Lucy - she was at the top of the hill at st Michaels mount in Cornwall - it was a very windy day and she was trying to be heard!!! Bless her!
I would like to enter this layout into the following challenges
