Time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges - this time its flower power! I'm sure you'll find this one quite easy. I hope you can join in with us. You'll find the post to link up to and all the details plus my teamies inspiration here.
I have used some Kay Carley stamps from Paperartsy to make my card. I adore these stamps - I used aquatints, distress pens, crayons and brushos/infusions to do the colouring.
Here's my card - I started by doing the stamping then coloured it all in.
The stamps are used were from the following stamp sheets:
The sky and grass basic colours were done with aquatints in a wash. I then used a combination of brushos, infusions and distress crayon to colour the lower flowers. The dangling flowers were done with distress pens and a water brush.
a close up shows the dragonflies - I coloured then using indigoblu luscious powders mixed with water.
I do hope you can join us this month - there's a £20 voucher up for grabs!!
