In The Country By Fliss Goodwin



Hi there, are you all singing now! I have a bright card for you this week, which actually concerns somewhere that at the moment is the last place I would go, as I’ve been suffering really badly from hayfever since the weekend! I can wish though! This time the spray mists have come out to play, as although they’re a bit messy, they’re a very quick way to colour the background.

Here’s What You Need: 

Crafty Individuals Stamps – CI-276 and CI-367
Distress Stains – shades of your choice
Scraps of Red and Green Card
White Square Card Blank


Here’s How To: 

·       Cut a piece of thick white card to fit your card blank and then spray on the mists, using Lettuce on the lower half and Lemon Zest the top. Blot with a paper towel and allow to dry.

·       Stamp the meadow silhouette image twice across the bottom of the square with the black ink. Set aside to dry. 

·       Stamp the poppy field image on white card with the black ink and when dry paint with the Distress Stains. I find it easiest to add dabs of colour to a craft sheet and pick the colour up with a damp brush. If you haven’t painted with these before you’re in for a treat, as you can layer the colours up to make them deeper and in the case of my poppies, I used Barn Door first then Ripe Persimmon over the top for a lovely bright red. 

·       Trim the image panel to leave a narrow white border and add to mats of red then green card. Attach all the elements to the card as shown in the photo and you’re done. You could add a sentiment if you wish and I left mine without so that I can choose the occasion later, as the card is suitable for lots of different ones and for either a male or female recipient.

Have a great weekend.
