frolicking fun twofer!

Good morning! Back again with another make for Countryview Crafts where the theme is summer fields. This time I have been using my gel press and paints and some linocut stamps from hobbyart.

I managed to get two prints from my round gelpress and decided to use them for my cards this time around. I applied translucent paints plus some opaque very light blu to my gel press and brayered it across - I took two prints very easily - this is the first deeper coloured print, Once dry I stamped the scene then added distress oxides and more stamping around the edge....

This is the second print - a little less vibrant but totally usable ...I used the same stamp set but chose some different stamps to try and show the fields more...

I do hope you can join the challlenge!

Big hugs
