My challenge on Craftymess

Well it is finally my turn to choose the challenge at Craftymess :) I chose to challenge everyone to use paint in their entries and we had some lovely stamps to use from Desmet Designs including my favourite this lovely little beach hut;


I Painted 3 mini canvases with a combination of Dylusions inks and Cosmic shimmer and set them aside to dry. I painted some white card and once dry stamped HOME SWEET HOME on it and cut them out by hand as I wanted an imperfect rustic look. I printed out 4 beach huts, 3 I painted and the final one I cut up to use as templates and then cut roofs and doors and bunting from some of the fab Amy Tangerine Range. Finally everything was stuck down onto the canvases and it now hangs in my home.
I love how it is bright and cheerful and very reflective of my crafting personality, well it certainly doesn't reflect a british summer!
