Friends 4Ever




Hello Everyone and Welcome! Today I am sharing my second project this month for Country View Challenges and our theme of Numbers. Again this is an "on crutches" creation so made with whatever I could reach from the craft room table!




I am really loving the combination of Blueprint and Twisted Citron Distress Inks, and can't seem to stop inking tags! The texture paste was added after and despite the ink being dry has picked up the colours underneath beautifully. 




I put together a little collage with papers from the Correspondence Stash and a lovely Photo Booth photograph.



My flower was made using the new Tim Holtz Punch. After punching I inked with Twisted Citron and scrunched the flowers up and let them dry before easing them out. They are a fabulous size and SOOOO quick to make! The little grungeboard number was inked with Blueprint Distress Ink and then Picket Fence Distress Paint daubed over the top to mute it.



If you have not joined in our challenge yet, then you will have to be quick! I am back with the theme for our new challenge in just a couple of days time!

As usual, thank you so much for joining me today and I hope that my projects for next month will be much more interesting as I get more mobile!

Jennie your tag is lovely. I'm enjoying the colours you're using too. After seeing your tag they are having a play together.
