A colour challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there,  its time for a new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog and this week our theme is to use 'Red Brown and Cream' although I've cheated a little bit and added some green leaves to my project 

I've used my favourite Poppy paint fusion stamps from Sheena Douglass and some scalloped Decor Plates from CaroLine's Rubber stamps, they are perfect for paint fusion as they are a really good weight and take the layers of paint beautifully.

I began by creating a crackle background with a layer of brown emulsion paint, once that I was dry I slapped on some watered down pva glue and a layer of cream emulsion. Once that was dry I stamped on my poppies and painted them with acrylic paint. Next came the daisies which I painted with grey and cream acrylic paint instead of my usual pale blue and white. I added the centres to the flowers and then decided to add  a few leaves at it looked a little bare. I gave the small scalloped frame (also from CaroLine's) the same background treatment and then dry brushed gold acrylic paint around the edges of the painting. The sentiment is from the new Artistic Expressions themeplate from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with versamark and embossed with gold EP.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
