Daisy Grunge in August for Country View Challenges

 Hello, I am back today with my 2nd design team post for Country View challenges to hopefully inspire you to join our current "birthday" challenge for July.  You can make anything you like using any products. You can enter a maximum of  5 times and into a maximum of 10 challenges including ours. 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. 

For this birthday card I decided to go floral and used the gorgeous Visible Image Daisy Grunge stamp set

 with the bee-autiful Bee Happy set. 

and the birthday sentiment from Lost for words

This is what I got up to;

 I made a background using saltwater taffy and uncharted mariner distress inks.

I stamped Daisy grunge and the bees in place and clear heat embossed them.

I painted the leaves with a little extra saltwater taffy and uncharted mariner ink.
I coloured the bees with gold gel pen and the daisy centre with blue glitter pen. I finished off with some glossy accents to the centre of the daisy and some sequins.

 Here is my finished card;
with a close up of the lovely Daisy and bees.

I hope I may have inspired you to join in with our August challenge. You can use any stamps products, the choice is yours. 
 Remember that when you buy from the Country View Crafts website UK postage is FREE on orders over £20.00

Once again you can find all the details for our August challenge here. 

I would love to see you over on Instagram where I share new creative makes nearly every day. This is my link/profile @jane.tyrrell
Sadly these days I just don't have the time to blog everything! 

A little heads up that if you would like to see a version this card made in person and how to make the distress ink background, I will be demoing it and lots of other designs for Country View Crafts at the Stamperama Show at Bedford International athletic centre on Sunday 25th September. Here is a link for the details. Pop the date in your diary. I will share more of my demos and samples during the coming weeks. 

Back soon,

Bye for now,
