A glass of Cheer

The end of Covid restrictions is in sight, the sun is shining and we are mid way through the year... but wait... today is also the day our Country View Challenges reach a momentous milestone and we celebrate the 100th challenge!

Naturally, our theme this month is "100" and we want to see 100, one hundred, 
or 100 "things" on your make AND we want you to take inspiration from one of the DT makes. 
Here's my inspiration:

For a 100th cocktail one needs glitter... so I used Sizzix TH Alphabet to die cut it from glitter cardstock. I also added waste from previous die-cutting, the small pieces in the shaker part of the glass, and the stars on the background paper. I can't remember where the design of the paper comes from but I printed it when my printer cartridge had run out of all colours but blue!

The glass, umbrella and Cheers sentiment is from a magazine freebie. I cut 4 layers from cereal boxes, one layer from a white iridescent paper and traced around the shape onto acetate to create the shaker. 

To glue the layers sandwiching the acetate I used gel medium as I have found that glue sometimes will just peel off. 

Over to you now... Take a look at what the DT made on the Country View Challenges blog and link up your project to the challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop.

Remember you must take inspiration from one of the DT makes, such as a colour scheme, technique, design idea, stamp or die motif for your make to be in with the chance to win and of course include "100" (or One hundred in any language). Do explain if it's not obvious!!!

This month there is also a second £20 voucher for a commenter 
on todays'  CVC and DT blog posts, drawn randomly. 
Hop to it!!!

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the AllsortsSSS Wednesday  challenges.
