Crafts Galore Encore August 2017

Sorry I haven't been around much lately but I've been having too much fun with family and friends. I hope you've all been keeping well while I've been busy. Today I have a card to show you that I made
for our August challenge on the
Thank you to everyone who joined in with July's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.
Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:
Beccy's Place
who is offering one digi set to the winner.

I have made an 8"x 8" (20cm x 20cm) card.

I created the background by adding texture paste through a stonework stencil on mixed media card. Once dried I painted it with a soft yellow acrylic then lightly brushed over the texture paste in pale grey. I painted the edges of another piece of card in brown acrylic and matted the yellow card on top.

We were allowed to chose one of Beccy's fabulous images and I chose The Old Well. I coloured it with Copics before trimming and scruffing the edges. I printed a sentiment and fixed them both to the card with foam pads.

I embellished the card with fabric flowers, polystyrene baubles, and bamboo sticks.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.

I've entered this project into the following challenges:
