Love heart

For my second project for this month's Heart theme I have made a page in my Dylusions Dyary. The heart is a Wendy Vecchi stencil (with PaperArtsy paints on black card) so I added some of my favourite leaf and flower stamps from Wendy too. I added a Dylusions stencils in the background and some washi tape. I loved making this page - and I hope you have been inspired to join in too - there's still time to enter and you may win a prize!

Wildflower heart garden

Hi Brenda here sharing my second project for our HEARTS challenge this month using an mdf heart that had been painted up eons ago but served my purpose perfectly to add Tim's wildflowers and some DecoArt media acrylics to create a dark corner of a summer garden.

I would love to see you at Bumblebees and Butterflies where there are more photos and details of the process steps.

I hope you are enjoying the challenge and have hopefully entered a project already.

Enjoy walking in a garden somewhere whether that be your own or one you are visiting.

hugs Brenda xxx

May Winner, Top 3 and DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the May winner of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

May winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...

#157 Irena's art

Congratulations, Irena!  Your winner's badge and voucher will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you'll join us a Guest Designer here at Country View Challenges in the future. 

Again we had a very popular challenge month! In May we received 164 entries to the Flower Power challenge! Thank you again for your participation!

The easy part was to see your fabulous creations but the the hard part was to choose the Top 3 and only one Special Mention project!

My choices for the Top 3 are the following (my order is by entry numbers).

This card was among the first entries on the very first day and I knew that time that Lesley's card could be one of the Top 3. I love the colours that she chose! She created the background with lovely soft colours and she used one of my favourite techniques: dabbing the ink with a simple kitchen/bath sponge on the surface :-) And although the flowers beautifully pop out they are not bold or harsh at all. And I must mention too, that this stamp sat from the PaperArtsy is my beloved too.

Again a card! Lou used Tonic Studios stamps with matching dies - and they really matched perfectly :-) Very nice design with not much but enough colours! I love it!

And again a beautiful card! Maria chose a plain white watercolour paper as a background which was perfectly embossed creating a perfect frame for her bouquet. The flowers were fabulously coloured with watercolour technique. 


And now I would like to prove you that I'm not just a card fan! As a DTSM I chose an upcycled mixed media project, an altered salt box by

This pencil holder is just stunning! Ramya used many beautiful handmade flowers what I really appreciate at this challenge!  The feathers were hand cut by Ramya which is amazing! I love the metallic colours over the reddish-pinkish colours! 
This pencil holder looks like a precious jewellery box! 

Congrats to the winners and don't forget to join our June challenge: HEARTS!

Big hugs,

WOW Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

And don't forget there is still lots of time to enter our June Challenge - Hearts
