Travel at countryview challenges

Hello lovelies! Well its time for me to do another post for countryview challenges to share the challenge theme for this month which is travel  - I wanted to use the tim-holtz-cling-mounted-stamp-set---cityscapes and i ended up doing a journal page ... as always I started with a page of brayer wipes!

I added more paint using the brayer and landed up with this background ...

I was happy with this but still added a little more paperartsy fresco vanilla to tone the colours down before continuing. Then I stamped the cityscapes directly onto the page - they didn't show up well so I moved to white card and fussy cut them!

I also added stamping and diecuts - from paperartsy and Tim holtz stamps plus an indigo blu script stamp that is always on hand on my desk. 

I added the city names using Tim stickers as the outline ..

The diecuts are from Tim Holtz - I love to travel - its part of life - but in the words of Tim - we always should 'enjoy the journey!

I hope you can join us in our challenge this month! You can find the linky here

Big hugs

Rachel xx
