Hello it's Jane here again today with my 2nd flower power inspiration project. I decided to make a Distress Oxide version of the tag I shared with you on the 1st of the month using exactly the same floral stamps.
I am always fascinated how 2 projects using the same stamps turn out so differently when different inks and colours are used. I have a full step by step over on my own blog here where a
floral warm welcome awaits you. We have already had some gorgeous entries into our Flower Power challenge this month, you have just under the week left to enter. We look forward to seeing lots more.
Bye for now,

Flower Power is terrific as there are so many ways you can incorporate flowers into your art. I made a page in my journal and used the idea of a jam jar filled with flowers as my central image. The colours are all complementary meaning that the yellowy orange flowers really pop out from the background. Thank you for joining me today and I hope you enter our challenge for the chance to win a great prize. Gabrielle x

Craftyfield here today with a single bloom... alone yes, but strong!
In complete contrast to my first inspiration piece I used only one flower for this card, but a big one to create, I hope, a powerful image. Do come over to see the details on my blog!

Hi it's Brenda here from Bumblebees and Butterflies and here I am sharing my second project for the Flower Power challenge and I promised you the finished journal to the covers I showed you on the 1st May. This was them.
I took the first set of panels (the design on the left) to make this finished piece .....
... and all the details of how I made the journal itself are on my blog today.
Grab a cuppa on the way over as there are lots of photos and steps for you to peruse if you have time.
I hope you are enjoying the challenge and have been able to pop over and took a look at the inspiration projects from the design team.
hugs Brenda xxx

#30 ToniCongratulations, Toni! 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.
Hello dear followers, today it´s time to choose the winners of our April challenge!
Although there were not as many entries as in the challenges before, the ones who through in their hat did a really fantastic job! It was hard to pick out only three of them!
But here they are in no particular order:
#2 - Laneen
Evelyn said: Laneen created a gorgeous male layout in a grunge style. The rusty bits and bobs are fitting perfect to the vintage photo of James Dean!
#17 - Jan
Evelyn said: Love this book cover to bits! I would love to touch the surface with all it´s texture. The rust is looking so very elegant here and the blue night sky pops out beautifully.
#30 - Toni
Evelyn said: Another gorgeous layout with loads of rust goodness! There are so many fabulous details, you nearly can´t stop looking at. The photo of the "machine man" rounds off the overall picture.
Evelyn´s choice for the Design Team Member's Special Mention this time even goes to two completely different entries, but both catched her eyes so much, that she didn´t want to leave one of them behind:
#7 - Lys
Evelyn said: What a fabulous and unique idea to alter an USB stick! Lys created an absolutely stunning tiny little piece of art with gorgeous rustiness. Love it!
#31 - Kristina
Evelyn said: This invitation card is so very elegant, although it is so simple! I love, how the created rust comes into focus.
And don't forget there is still lots of time to enter our May Challenge - Flower Power

I'm loving the challenge this month, and I know you are too, so here's some more flower power.
Again I've used some of my favourite (they're all my favourites) PaperArtsy stamps, and my neglected but now sharpened watercolour pencils. There are lots more pictures over at Sue The Iron so please pop across x
