Hello crafty friends and happy July!!! I'm here with the first inspirational project for the July challenge of the Country View Challenges. Our theme was chosen by the lovely Sue: Do more of what makes you happy.
For my first card, I chose Tim Holtz products, his dies, inks, stamp and baseboard doll. Because these are my favourites. I have nearly 400 Tim Holtz related blogposts so I think it's enough proof that these are the things that make me happy.
For making this card, I had an inspirational project, one of my earlier card, a crazy dog on the moon. But later I have seen a quite similar project of the talented Emma Williams. You have to see that too because it's so beautiful (link is here). Her works always inspire me.
To begin, I cut a rectangle panel and I blended all the blue Distress Oxide inks that I have (it means all) onto the surface. I started with the darker colours and continued with the lighter colours. Then I spattered my panel with Brushed Pewter Spray Stain.
For the text, I used the Tiny Text stamp set (CMS394) and Ranger silver embossing powder.
For the stars and moon, I used two Sizzix dies, the Crescent Moon&Stars Bigz die and the Swirling Stars Thinlits die.
Then I used two Idea-Ology pieces. One from the Baseboard Dolls and the other from the Transparent Wings. I coloured both with Distress embossing glazes (Tattered Rose, Fossilized Amber).
So if you have a project with things you love, please don't hesitate to join our July challenge where you can win a £20 voucher. I think this is a real anything goes challenge.
