April Showers and Stripes Challenge at The Twinery

Hi Everyone, I'm back today with my take on The Twinery's newest Challenge, April Showers & Stripes

As soon as the challenge was announced, I knew what picture I'd be using!  On Easter weekend we were in Chatham, MA to visit my parents.  Chatham is also home to one of my daugher's all-time favorite stores...Jack Wills.  (she has this obsession with all things British)  Of course we had to visit (and purchase...)  And what trip to Jack Wills would be complete without the photo with the custom Landrover in Pink and Navy Stripes?  The title "Fabulously British" is the company's trademark.

The background was painted using a Crafter's Workshop stencil and a Ranger paint dauber.  To go along with The Twinery's Stripes theme, I wrapped some of the new Blossom Iridescent around some navy paper squares.  The paper is from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Collection.

 For the stitched title and heart, I dyed some of the Twinery's Natural Twine using some Mr. Huey's in Passport.  I put a quick tutorial on how to do this on my post over on The Twinery's Blog.   I also used the Passport spray to dye the wood veneer speach bubble.   The "Fabulously" was cut using my Silhouette.


The stickers, rub-ons and flair are from the Lucky Charm collection.

 I created a little hidden journalling pocket using one of the stickers from the collection and some washi.

That's all for today...thanks for stopping by and make sure that you stop by The Twinery's Blog and link up your April Showers & Stripes creation here!  You could win this fabulous prize package:
