We are continuing to celebrate Country View Crafts Challenges Blogaversary this month with the theme ‘Anything Goes’. I chose to focus on my new favourite colour, Bougainvillea which featured in both projects this month!
I took a mdf board and covered it with Chalk paint and then added Bougainvillea with a hint of Carribean Sea. I then added some stencilled and stamped images in the background.
The truly wonderful Lynne Perrella hot air balloon was stamped on tissue paper and I painted the reverse. When dry, I then adhered it to cream card and cut it out (be warned: this took a-g-e-s!)
I then added a few wire strings to attach the figure with the balloon and adhered it to the background. I also re-stamped the swirl on the balloon and the label on the figure on cream card and adhered them on the top of the image for a little depth.
Congratulations Country View Crafts Challenges once again on your Blogaversary and we can’t wait to see what you’ll make for our theme – don’t forget there’s a prize to be had!
