THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

So we reached the second CHALLENGE this June,  of :
A SUMMER`S DAY-
and I had this house , from one of Melina`s newest stamps set,
which is so lovely and fairy-like , a tiny castle to call home.
I used one of the new greyboard tags, and stamped the house directly to the 
background, after having painted it white.
After  Flat Matte Spray Tomato was sprayed over the house and tag, with 
diluted Chestnut Brown paint- 
I stamped the house onto white tissue paper , and adhered to the not totally dry
sprayed greyboard, which results in the tissue ,soaking up the sprays.


After,- one of my favorite stencils was used with texture paste, in left side panel 
and left to dry. I made a kind of tiny flower from old lace, and stamped the
words from same set as the houses- onto a piece of white cotton.
It was layered with fabric netting onto another piece of fabric, and I sewed around it,
with sewing mashine.


The lovely bush was painted with green sharpie,and  
the windows got a little white . I outlined the stamped house with
brown, painted with Multi Surface Paint Mint around it over the whole tag , and
used a little Flat Matte Tomato on to the stenciled pattern, followed with 
Distress Ink -Gathered Twigs. Then stamped two birds from Lynnes Set 2
flying over the house - in black-


Adhered flower and a torn edge of lace to panel-  punched two holes, in the bottom,
through where I tied the fabric sign with the help of two strings. 
A white sari silk piece, was also painted with the different sprays and paints,
and tied through the tag hole, and wrote Summer in right side panel.

A SUMMERS DAY


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.
