2Crafty February Shares #3

Hello everyone!!  Welcome to my blog!!  Hope you are all having a wonderful day.  We are at the beginning of a heatwave here in South Australia.  Going to be in the mid to high 30's all week.  Not looking forward to it at all!  Come on Winter!!!!!!  LOL!!

So, I am back to share the third and final instalment of my February shares for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
2Crafty Chipboard used
 Hessian Patch Panel

Word Circles
I used a piece of watercolour paper and created the background on this card with some
 strips of paper from Prima's Romance Novel collection and some texture paste through a stencil.  I then did some stamping
 and lightly sprayed it all with Fired Brick Distress Ink.

I had a small piece of the Hessian Patch Panel left over from another project and 
found it was just the right size for this card.  I coated it with white acrylic paint and
 then dabbed over that with Silver Distress Paint.  I really love this panel, it was 
the perfect base for my flower cluster.

The Word Circle was coloured in the same manner but this time, before it was dry,
 I also covered it in clear glitter.

These Word Circles are brilliant!!!  Small enough to use on cards but also a 
good size for Scrapbooking and off the page projects too. 
The inside decorated with more of the Romance Novel papers and also a couple of stamps.

Well, this was the last of my 2Crafty projects for this month.
