Back to Basics..........

The host this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog is the lovely Ros and she has gone 'Back to Basics' and  wants us to use paint and recyled cardboard on our project,hop on over and take a look at what the DT have created,they are so inspiring.


All supplies are from Stampin'Up except the white paint even the recycled cardboard was from a Stampin'Up box.I used the Sizzix Scallop Circle to diecut the cardboard and painted it with white acrylic paint. The patterned paper is from the Botanical Gazette range which I stamped onto with the splatter and postage frank from the French Foliage stamp set and then stitched onto Baja Brezze card. The frame is from Four Frames,inked with Crumb Cake and punched out using the Decorative Label Punch,the sentiment is from Butterfly Prints. I diecut the butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits in Baja Breeze and painted with white paint.
I really enjoyed making this card such a great challenge, now I'm off to make the most of this wonderful sunshine and off for a picnic by the river.
