In the meadow at stamps and stencils.

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well and happy! I am in charge of the theme at stamps and stencils this month and I have chosen 'In the Meadow'. Here was my brief for the challenge...

 Meadows are such amazing places - lots of different grasses, wild flowers and wonderful wildlife. Let your imagination run wild ...and use stamps or stencils too! Enjoy!

I decided to use some stamps from Hobbyart in order to make my card - I will show you the final piece and then how I made it! The words are from Alison Bomber and the stencil from Kay Carley both at Paperartsy.

Here's what I did....

I started with stamping and masking the hare and masking a sun. Then I created some hills using the clarity stencil brush and distress ink.

Next I added the sky....

I then used the Kay Carley mask adding some grasses, butterflies and dragonflies.

Next I coloured the hare using distress inks and stamped more grasses using hobbyart stamps.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and also coloured the sun!

I hope you can follow what I did! 

I hope you can join our challenge too.... you can find more inspiration from my amazing teamies and enter the challenge here..

Big hugs
