DT Challenge - Megan

Hi Everyone :)

By now you would have all seen the DT kit Liz sent all of us.  From mine I have created a mixed media layout and with the scraps a card.  Hope you like :)

First up is the layout.
Last year my friends from nursing all got together for a weekend away in Hanmer Springs and we worked out it had been 15 years since all four of us had been together.  Such a fun weekend and lovely to know that we all got along like we were first year nursing students again :)

I created the background by dry brushing on white gesso and then layered a script stencil over the top with black gesso.  A bit of random stamping with several stamps and distress glitter and the background was done.

Here you can see the different layers and the jumbled black thread I threw on there as well.  The white button was one the Artful Embellies - I stamped the reverse of the button with stazon ink.

Another little close up for you.  I love those circle stamps from Finnabair!

Heres the card made from the leftovers.  Simple but effective!  The lily is one of the Heartfelt Creations stamp and die sets - Liz can get these in for you ;)  -  this was the first time Ive attempted to colour them, I used pencils and blended the colours with baby oil - theres a great tutorial on pinterest to do it :)

Thanks for popping by!
