May Flowers

oh my!!! how quickly those two weeks have gone!!! we are half way into the Hambo Challenge, which is to include flowers on your project. For my card I have used one of the FLOWERS digi images from Hambo Stamps, there are actually three different flowers in this set. I printed the flower in three different sizes, colored them with promarkers, cut them out and then decoupaged them onto my stamped, stencilled, and sewn background. Hope you can join in the challenge, there are two free digi images of your choice up for the winner!!

A Happy Hoedown Return...Yaaaaay!!

OH Hambo Hoedown!!!.....I have missed you sooooo.... but, Yaaaaaaay.....your'e back.!! The challenges are once a month, there are two free digis up for grabs so come and join in the fun of the new  Hambo Hoedown Challenge where this months theme is flowers.
Oooooohh I can't stop experimenting with mixed media backgrounds, they are so much fun to do, I admit I am not an expert yet like Dyan Reaveley, Magda Polakow, or France Pappilon (bowing down in admiration!!) but we all have to start somewhere eh!!.
I started the background of this card with a layer of crackle glaze, then spread on some cream acrylic paint, it is always magical to see the cracks appear!! then I stencilled on the honeycomb using acrylic paints, then outlining it with a charcoal pencil, added some painted drywall tape, then finished off with some sewing (my new love too!!).
The flower is the GERANIUM  digi image from Hambo Stamps
