It's All Zesty & Zingy at That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
Today is the start of a new challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty challenge blog and our theme for the next 2 weeks is to make any type of crafty project using
"Zesty Zingy Colours"
My little piece of inspiration for our challenge uses the new stamp set EKD03 designed by Kim Dellow for Paperartsy.

For my zesty zingy colours I have combined orange, limes and yellows.
I first stamped one of the images onto my card and masked it off with Pebeo gum. The background colour is a stencil that I have sprinkled Lindys Stamp Gang pigment powders onto and then spritzed with water, I then laid the stencil onto the card capturing any seepage with kitchen roll, I think this is one of my favourite effects, at the moment anyway.
I then stamped the 3 flowers first onto a gelli print and again on white card as I needed to paper pierce over the flower heads. The centre of the heads have been cut out from a 3rd stamping and added on using foam mount for some dimension. 
Before adding them to the card I added a torn piece of gelli printed card and stamped the 3 flower image again and then layered on my separate flowers. the little lion sitting on one of the flowers was stamped, coloured and cut out. All colouring is with Prismacolour pencils. 
Sentiment is one of the kids quotes from Inkadinkado.
For more fabulous inspiration there is a variety of fabulous makes from the rest of the DT HERE.

As with every challenge one randomly chosen entry into our challenge will win a fabulous £20 voucher to spend at That's Crafty online Store (and there are loads of new goodies just arrived)
