A Bird’s Eye View (Crafty Individuals challenge)

Hello Everyone
It is time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Individuals Blog.
For the month of March the challenge theme is the Animal World, as chosen by Sylvie. 


To enter this month’s Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your chosen project, which must include at least one Crafty Individuals product, then post your Challenge project on your Blog, before the end of the month, and include a link back to the Crafty Individuals blog, leaving a link in the URL box. 

At the end of the month Sylvie will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice, and don’t forget that as per usual, once you have linked in your creation, you can also claim a lovely 25% discount code to use on anything you purchase from the CI Website, which will be valid to use until the 10th of April.

My sample is a card featuring Alice Palace designs.  Unusually for me, there are no detail photographs.
I laid down fabric and pattern papers onto watercolour paper onto which I then applied paint, adding touches of Gesso through sequin waste.  I gathered Alice Palace design stamps, selecting little areas here and there from the stamps, allowing me to create my own little scene.marchchallengelynneforblogVisit HERE for further details of the March challenge and for inspiration.
Well, that was a very quick post, quite unusual for me! Many thanks for your visit.

    Oh this is soooo fun, Lynne!! I love the Alice Palace images–so much so that I just placed an order with CI for a few!!! 🙂 🙂 (ssshhhh, hubby does not know, yet!) 🙂 🙂 This could be a scene right outside my window–during certain times of the year, with the goose and the hummingbird! Simply Lovely!! Is it Summer yet? 🙂

    So charming – a real touch of sunshine to this… it’s such an uplifting colour and perfectly matched with the birds and the words.
