The random winner of this whole pack is

I did the cobblestone stencil work under the cobblestone chipboard. I applied DA clear crackle varnish on to most of the chipboard, let dry, then blended in color to bring out the cracks….
I dipped the mini blossoms in water, then separated the layers of chipboard, then dabbed on the watered down paints, (Capri & Oceania). Once they had dried I glued them together & glued on beads into the flower centers….
To add another layer to the the arch window &bottle border, I used the old wooden fence small….
Thank you so much for taking the time to look, & I am looking forward to seeing, what you come up with, with this months Mood Board….Rachelle
