Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is
Sparkle and Shine
I have made a Christmas card today

I started by masking a moon and making my background with Weathered Wood Distress ink,I then stamped some rocks .

Next I stamped in the tree trunks , fir trees and some more rocks all this stamping was done in Weathered wood..I am trying to make it look misty and frosty

I then stamped in the stag and some grasses

I have gone round the edges and corners with Black soot Distress ink to frame my picture.. I Then stamped my sentiment and went in with a glue pen and glitter where I thought the frost would be.

A wooden Hanging

Hello to you all, I have been messing with some wood, I had two plaques and got my son to cut the center out of one to form an aperture . I coated them both with Gesso and then dark blue acrylic.
When this was dry I the gave a coat of light blue I left this to dry then gave it a rub with sandpaper to reveal the dark blue underneath...

I then went through a leaf stencil with some  Imaginaton Crafts Sparkle Medium...I glued some burlap to the back and added the flowers before gluing both pieces

Nautical Inspiration at Country View

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is
I must apologise I have not got any photo's of  how this was made but will explain my steps.
I first started by tearing some paper to form the hills and inked these up with Bundled Sage distress ink ,after this I punched out a circle and used it to mask off a moon and using Faded Jeans distress ink  inked up the sky..

My sea was also made using Faded Jeans and a white pen.....My ship stamp was inked up with Black Versafine and to get the reflection I first stamped onto some scrap paper and then onto my sea,I then inked it up and stamped it the right way round...The sentiment was last to be inked up and stamped. xxx

I do hope you check out the rest of the DT projects for some fab inspiration.
