Week13 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Goodness, where has the time gone - Week 13 already and now my atc is done and dusted I've got half way through the challenge. With so much else going on in my life I could quite easily have fallen by the wayside but actually it's helped me keep just a teensy bit of sanity!

So this week brings us the letter B and a chance to crack open the Lin Brown stamps I bought at the Craft Barn Extravaganza. Using Fresco Finish Paint I started by painting a piece of canvas paper with Cheesecake and then using a brickwork stencil sponged it over with Pumpkin Soup - what great names! I stamped the leaves, flower and word with Distress Inks and then used  lighter colour inks in the range to paint the white spaces.
