Zoe - Challenge #1 January "Anything Goes"

Happy New Year Lovelies, I hope you all had a fab Christmas and you're not suffering too badly from bringing in the New Year? Cup of tea and early night for us, lol very boring, been there done all that and had the hang overs, I'm way past all that now lol!

So to kick off the new year here's what I've made for The Lavinia Stamps Challenge, if you've never joined in before then please be mindful of the rules - only Lavinia Stamps or products used please there is a very generous prize of £40 to spend on the Lavinia Stamps online shop

My first 2 projects I used a fab technique called "Bokeh Effects" it's supposed to look like looking through squinty eyes at headlights lol, anyway it's pretty easy, fun and effective I think? I got it from this months issue of Craft Stamper mag.

 

My third card I just layered up chalk paints using a dryish brush to get a very random effect, the Happy Birthday is a die cut, I used Imagination crafts dimensional glitter gel.

My final card I masked the edges of linen texture card and applied Milled Lavender DI sweeping across ways to get a more faded effect, I used Bundled Sage and Milled Lavender to stamp the subtle leafy background, birds and stars, finished off with glitter glue here and there.

I hope you like my projects? Thank you for taking the time to visit today and I hope it's inspired you to join in? Please take a look at my very talented Teamies projects too xx have a great day xx Zoe xx
