Under the water stenciling for Country View Challenges

 Hello it's time for my 2nd design team make for Country View. For this month's challenge we would like to see you use a stencil (or 2) on your make. 

As always there is a fab £20 voucher up for grabs for one lucky randomly selected winner to spend on the website.  You can find all the details of the challenge and more examples made by my talented teamies here.

I wanted to get out my art journal this time and take myself away to the seaside (well in my head anyway). I do hope we can get back here later this year....our beloved Rhodes.

I knew just the stencil I wanted to use to take me back to the beach. I have linked some of the products I used to the CVC website. This is what I got up to;
I sprayed my pages with salty ocean distress stain spray. 

Using  cracked pistachio and  salty ocean distress ink I stencilled waves suing the awesome Visible Image Fibres stencil
I stamped the seahorse from Create your calm first in my journal and then onto inky mop up card. I cut out the main body of the orange one. I stamped the sentiment from the set too onto my left hand page.
The Mythical mermaid set has some gorgeous waves and bubble stamps in it so I added those to the pages.

and also lots of the little element stamps from The Mythical mermaid set including the dolphins.
I also die cut some seaweed using Tim Holtz' Festive greenery (as you do!) as well as some other sea theme elements you will see in my final photos.

It was then time to put my pages together. Here they are;

and one final shot;
I hope I may have inspired you to join in with our July "use a stencil (or 2)" challenge. You can use any stamps/products, the choice is yours. 
You can enter our challenge as many times as you like and combine with other challenges. There is also a £20 crafting voucher up for grabs to the lucky randomly selected winner to spend over on the Country View Crafts on line store. Once again all the details for the July challenge can be found here.

Susan has recently had a restock the awesome Visible Image stencils and stamps you can see them all here.  Remember that UK postage and packing from CVC is free on all orders over £7.50!
