Ornate seaside frame card

Hello it's Jane here again to share my 2nd card for the month to hopefully give some more inspiration for our Blues and Greens challenge, which has just over a week left to run. I made a seaside card with a very ornate frame.
If you would like to see a step by step everything is over on my blog here. It's worth swimming  popping over to see the background in full. As always it all gets covered over. The things we do to our art eh!

Enjoy the last week of August and happy holidays to you all. We are enjoying seeing all your lovely blue and green entries. 

Bye for now,

Pop over to my blog  to see how I created this project.

I don't like...

For this month's Blue and Green theme (which I have LOVED!) I have tried to think a little more differently and make a journal page in less than half an hour.
I simply added white Fresco Finish paint to a black page in my journal and made sure that it was thin coverage so some of the black shows through. I'd used a stencil for my first project this month and so I simply used the leftover ink by flipping the stencil over and rubbing it to transfer the ink to the page (which is why the numbers are reversed!) The blue heart and green coloured stamped images finish off the page.
Thank you, as always for popping by!

July Winner, Top 3 & DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the July winner of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!
 
___________________________

July winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...

#23 Lovely Linda
 
 
 
Wow what can I say! There were 128 wonderful entries into my things with wings theme for our July challenge. I was delighted to see so many diverse projects. Thanks so much to everyone who rose to the challenge, it was great fun visiting all your blogs. I'm sorry if I didn't manage to comment on everyone's..I would have been away for days. This however did lead to a dilemma...how on earth could I just chose a Top 3 from the 128? Well after a couple evenings I did manage it and here there are, in the date order they were submitted into the challenge.

As you well know I have a "cute" side too. This sweet little bird card flew into the challenge early on and immediately caught my eye. Gail's CAS (Clean and simple) design is delightful and despite all that white space that little bird stamp and words really gives the feeling of flying and movement. A really super cute card which made me smile.




I love colouring images (when I get the time) and Carol's brilliant dragon stood out with its gorgeous red, white and blue colours. Her colouring is fabulous and he stands out so well on the speckled background. A most unusual "thing with wings" and a striking card.



Nora's gorgeous art journal spread joined the challenge during the last few days of July and what beautiful pages she created. There is so much texture and her painted butterfly is stunning. The fabulous background and colours are so summery too. A really beautiful entry.

So those are my Top 3. Now I just need to reveal my Design Team Special Mention (DTSM)...and it goes to 



Janner obviously knows my weakness for fairies as one of my favourite things with wings...in fact she quite rightly said that it sounded wrong to call a fairy a "thing". This is the most delightful card...those fairies are perfectly silhouetted against the gorgeous stamped and inked background. The monochrome colour scheme works perfectly too for this very magical card and as the sentiment says, "Those who don't believe in magic will never find it".... I could not agree more!

Thanks again to everyone who entered and made it such a pleasure to see so many gorgeous things with wings. Remember that our current August challenge theme is Blues and Greens and we hope to see lots more of your lovely work. Here is the link. Enjoy the summer and happy crafting.

Bye for now,
