What A Week!!

Well what a week this one has been........ I still haven't got over Tuesdays early start of getting up at 3.30am for a meeting at 8.30am in Warwickshire, thanks goodness I am off this weekend. Anyway in my state of total exhaustion I have managed to get myself going and make my design piece for this weeks challenge over at Crafts4eternity and here it is:-
fortunately I made all the flowers at the weekend I stamped 3 designs of stamps from Sheena Douglass wonderful "A little bit sketchy flower power" stamp set and coloured them with Dylusions Pure sunshine and Lemon Zest, then painstakingly cut them all out and edged them with a black fine liner (I just don't like a white edge). All I had to do with them tonight was to highlight parts of them with a white Posca Pen.

the background is a combination of mustard seed distress ink through sequin waste, chicken wire stamp from Creative Expressions and some paint splodges of mustard seed distress paint.

The sentiment also comes from Sheena Douglass and is from the set "Only Words - Through the Rain" I have also stamped a bee onto the sentiment (it was just in my stash)

Our challenge at Crafts4eternity this week is a Tic,Tac,Toe one And I have chosen Layers,Spots and Yellow, for a full look at the grid visit HERE and choose your line to join in with us this week.
