Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #246

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.

The time has come for a new Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.  This time, Dr. Monika is our host and the Theme is No Patterned Paper.
As always, you can created anything you like, it does not have to be a card, but you must follow the Theme.  

I created a small masterboard using a brayering technique I have been wanting to try for a while now.  I learned about it from the amazingly talented Alison Bomber at Words and Pictures.   Unfortunately, I can't find the post where she describes the technique but it is quite simple really.   You just spray some water on your mat, place a couple of blobs of paint on it in whatever colours you wish, and then brayer it.  Then, all you need to do is run the brayer over a piece of watercolour paper, spreading the colour until you are happy with the result.
For this board, I used Navy and Antique White Acrylic Paint by Semco.  I also added a touch of Rainy Day Chalk Paint by Little Birdie.   Wasn't sure how the chalk paint would go mixed with the Acrylic, but it was fine
The Best Wishes chippie is from Scrapmatts. 
The Wildflower Dies are by Tim Holtz.  I cut three of  them out in white cardstock and coloured two with Distress Ink, leaving the third one plain white for contrast.

I really love the wildflower dies as they make it so quick and easy to create a pretty card.

Would love it if you could pop over to the CCM Blog and take a peek at the fabulous creations by the rest of the Team.  Lots of inspiration to be found there.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by.  Sorry that I haven't been terribly active on my blog lately but I'm afraid it's going to be quiet here again for a few weeks as hubby and I are off on a Cruising holiday.   This post was scheduled before we left so hopefully it will publish alright.

Thank you everyone for your support and the lovely comments you leave for me.  I really do appreciate it.   A big thank you also to my new followers.  So pleased you decided to join up.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your crafting!!
Take care and God Bless.
