YES , we have a new challenge , and one we can all relate to : 

A SUMMERS DAY  ( Summery images ) 

And here is my sample . One of my favorite White Greyboards
onto which I stamped, my favorite from Lynne`s new Wildflower Stamps,
using Archival Ink. Also the wonderful butterfly from Melina`s newest
stampsets was stamped with the same ink- and for both using the
Stamp Platform .

Onto the bottom I created crackle effect using the crackle glace - and brown and white
acrylic paint.  The butterfly was painted using watercolors, and Posca pens.
On the top panel I stenciled a word, from Lynne`s wonderful new stencil affirmations,
using Texture Paste.

I outlined the pattern on the butterfly with a sharpie , and added little dotted
details to the wildflowers.  Also the new Stitch stencil was used with the brown sharpie, 
and brown acrylic paint on the right side , top and buttom panel . 
The painted background in  Mint- was dabbed directly onto the panel , around the stamped images .

Last I added a tiny branch, from the garden onto which I wound pieces of
babies wipe, used to dry up  Flat Matte Spray , Basil ,--from an earlier  creation.
The butterfly got a body with a tiny piece of branch, too- and the Imagination 
was sprayed with diluted Chestnut Brown, and I draw around every letter with the brown
sharpie .

I hope your summer also gives lots of inspiration to take part in the challenge. 
The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

Hello all, to the second round of our challenge over at : 

This time, again I used, one of the wonderful  White Greyboards
as background, and playing onto a piece of craft paper , I left the white
page up ,and only run around it with the Jet Black Archival ink.
The craft paper I tore in right side, and also went over the perimeter with ink .

The paper was given a gesso layer, and after I used a left over PDF piece ,from one of the sheets .
I dipped it into Black gesso, and used it as stamp, in 3 places--see the wonderful texture it gave .
On top of that, when dried, I stamped the beautiful butterfly from  Collection stamp set 3
in two places on the paper .

They were also stamped onto a piece of fabric, using the stamp platform ,
stamping over again ,to give enough effect. They were fussy cut, and adhered on top of the other butterflies.In right side a little diluted black paint was, added and allowed to run.
In left side I used the new Stitch stencil ,and in right I sewed a line on sewing machine ,
adding a torn piece of old lace under.Another piece was sewed to the paper in lower left side.
Onto a paper scrap I wrote, : A stitch in time, and adhered it to the lace piece.

Lastly I used the new Apricot Multi Surface paint , in a few places , to add 
a little color and to match the butterflies ., and of course I left the thread in long ends,
hanging from the panel , to which the finished creation, was adhered.

I hope you enjoy the challenges , where you know :

The winner  will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.
