Fleur


Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend. I've made a little hanging which I'm entering into the 'a little paper' challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. The paper which is around the size of a 6x6 paper pad I've made myself using a pretty Wendy Vecchi flower stencil and the heart stencil and mask together with another floral stencil from the stencil girl and some letter stencils.


 There are lots of layers of distress paints, Dylusions inks, fine lining and text with black India ink and some ink and paint splats too.

I mounted my paper onto some corrugated card painted with watered down white distress paint.

The ribbons for hanging are coloured with Dylusions inks which I love for their vibrancy although here I've used them with some of the white to lighten the up.
I'm also entering the Country View Crafts challenge of 'how does your garden grow' and the Songbirds Challenge ' Bloom and Grow'.
Have a lovely Sunday,
Chris x
