Zoe - Challenge #7 July "Flowers"

Good morning Lovelies from a beautiful Saint Catharines in Ontario, Canada. Here on our Holibobs visiting our lovely daughter Ashley for 3 weeks, fingers crossed I've got the timing right on my scheduled post? 5 hour time difference.

So here we are another month gone, boy the time is flying. It's Challenge #7 for July and the theme this month for Lavinia Stamps Challenge is "Flowers" Can't wait to see what you make for this month, the challenge is a very successful one with more and more entries each month, must be the fantastic prize - £40 voucher to spend online in the Lavinia Stamps store. Please be mindful of the few rules we have to enter this challenge. You must use Lavinia Stamps or products on your project!

So here are my samples.

My Tag is textured with texture paste smeared onto watercolour card first, then once dry I spritzed the card the used Aquatints blobbed on using a pipette, I love all the wicking as the colours merge together, I used Gold gilding wax over the textured bit to create depth and interest, I stamped my images and word and edged the card using a gold glittery pen, I mounted onto my tag which is Kraft card, I stamped the script background and spritzed with a gold spray ink by Prima Marketing - Color Bloom. I always find my photography skills (or lack of lol) don't really show the work to its true shimmery beauty!

My second make is some small wooden tags I've had lying around for years, I primed with Gesso first then painted using the gorgeous chalk paints by Parper Artsy, stamped my flowers, added some highlights using white and Gold gel pens, I hand wrote the flower names and edged with gold gilding wax to finish off, and voila, a little tag sampler!


Thank you for spending the time to visit my blog today, please visit my teamies blogs too and look at their wonderful creations, you will find their blogs down the right side of my blog page.

Have a great day xx Zoe xx
