Drips and Drops Inspiration

Hello to you all, I am back with my third share for  Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Drips and Drops

My background was made with distress inks Seedless Preserves and Broken China  this was done by putting a little of both inks onto a craft mat  and spritzing with some water then smooch the tag all over the ink, dry with a heat gun and repeat this twice. I then edged with Black Soot and stamped on my image using Black Archival ink




I then coloured my image with distress inks and stamped some background words


And added a sentiment

Home

Hello to you all, I am sharing a Door Plaque with you today, I have taken inspiration from Jo Myhill and have up-cycled a piece of chipboard. I first gave it a good coating of Gesso once dry started brayering on Inky Pool,Sky and SnowFlake fresco paints just putting on very little paint and  letting the layers dry in-between finishing off with Snowflake, I have tried to give it a driftwood look and think I achieved this. (Love the Texture)
The stamps I have used are from Electica by Lin Brown , love this set and think I will get lots of use from them. Hope you like it

Paper Artsy and Paint


Hello to you all, I have been messing with Fresco paints and a brayer for this share.
Over on the Paper Artsy blog I was inspired by Lynne Moncrieff and her subtle background and use of flowers and mixing paints to get other colours.

 My background was actually made with a brayer after watching a video by Leandra of PaperArtsy and I loved the technique ....I used this background for my card and I used JOFY 24 stamp set for my images. I coloured them in with more Fresco paints and added a sentiment. I hope you like it.xxx
