Challenge 20 - "Love paints"

The theme Love Paints was inspired by leading craft experts, mostly scrapbookers using paints as a background or element on their pages. I have often wondered over the years how painting could be used in card making but I have never played with this idea until now! 

Love Paints? Let's see...

Don't be afraid to use paints as a background rather than coloured card stock or don't be afraid to use it as an accent to your card.

Good luck, stick to the theme and link back here for us to choose a winner in a fortnight. The winner will receive a small crafty prize from docrafts Creativity Club (our sponsor)

Here is some inspiration from out super Design Team – a challenge for them too!

Just a quick post...

I am really sorry for the lateness of this posting, but things have been a bit hectic here.. but I thought I would just drop by and say my apologies for the Challenge not being set this week.

Our lovely Emma Goddard, who has been looking after the challenge blog in my absence, has stepped down as the organiser, and we haven't had a chance to discuss what is happening with it going forward..

As soon as I know anything, and have had chance to discuss the situation with Emma C, the founder of the blog and the group, I will give you more details.

Jo xx
