ooh this was a difficult challenge over at The Craft Barn! There are not so many words starting with 'Z'. I went for 'Zone'.
I used Distress Paints for the background colours - Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Broken China. I dabbed then on then smoothed them out and blended the edges with my fingers. I had not used them before a Hels Sheridan workshop I attended last Saturday, the workshop was amazing - Hels is fab fun and an amazing teacher, (I will post the results another time). I went with my friends Marl, Claire and Lizzy and we had such a laugh! Anyway I digress! The paints are awesome and Distress Inks work over the top! I used different masks over each section. All are Special Touch masks. I inked through with Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Pine Needles Distress Inks. The stitching detail separating the sections is an InkyDoodles stamp from the Fabulous Fabrics set and the large letters are Cuttlebug. The circles are Spellbinders. I am late again, just sneaking in last minute! If you get the chance, please hop over to the Craft Barn and see the DT pages and other entries - all of them are always fabulous! Have a brilliant weekend whatever you are doing and thank you so much for visiting me. Take care. Christine xx
