Good morning my lovelies, Monday morning so its back to work for me but before I go here's my entry for this month's challenge at Indigo Blu where the theme is 'Words and Phrases'
I've used a set of 3 folk art hearts which i've painted with gesso and coloured with PanPastels before adding Kroma Crackle around the edges. This was the first time i've used Kroma Crackle I just love this stuff, I even got up in the night to see how it was drying lol (I know, how sad am I??)
Anyway once it was dry I highlighted all the crackle with some Renaissancce Treasure gold.
I added some Maimeri Light Modelling Paste through a Crafters Workshop Harlequin template and added colour with PanPastels.
I've used the sentiment from 'Music Hall' and all the other images are from 'Mr Darcy'. I've used Graph'it markers to colour the images. I've added some roses made with watercolour paper, victorian velvet distress ink and liberally sprinkled with rock candy glitter. The leaves are also die cut, coloured with PanPastels and stamped with a music stamp from 'Music hall' and gilded with Morris Dance gilding flakes. The little flowers are some prima ones I've been hoarding but they were the perfect colour for this project so they got a sprinkle of glitter too. The little butterfly is from the Ribbon Girl, given a coat of gesso and some treasure gold. To finish off i've added some pale pink bows with ribbon recycled from the packaging from The Funkie Junkie Boutique (Linda always packages everything beautifully so its like opening a lovely present when my order arrives)
