Plantastic at Countryview Challenges

Hello there! Wow - October already! How did that happen? Well its my turn to host the challenge at Countryview and I have chosen the theme - PLANT-TASTIC! Made up word I know - but what I'm really getting at is vegetation of any type - including flowers ...you could even do something like potato prints.

So my first piece to try and inspire you is using the recent release of dies from Tim Holtz that you can find here.


Here's the finished piece - these dies are so funky!!!


I cut the plants out and then coloured and stuck the parts together....


Next I added some stencilled plants to an mdf-monolith and after drying I added paint...


Here it is - next it was a case of playing with a posca pen and then arranging the plants before adding the words.

I do hope you can join us! You'll find the link up here and loads more inspiration too! You could win a £20 voucher to spend in susan's store!!!

Big hugs
