Mr Darcy

Good morning my lovelies, my project this morning is my entry for this months challenge at Indigo Blu where the them  is 'Backgrounds Galore'. I had a lovely messy time with lots of gesso, Flitter Glu and gilding flakes making my project.

On one side I've used Mr Darcy from the stamp set 'Mr Darcy', he's been coloured with promarkers. I painted the heart with black gesso and once that was dry I stamped around the edges with Flitter Glu and added gilding flakes. I've added some hearts made with Maimiri Light Modelling Paste coloured with PanPastel and highlighted with treasure gold. I also decorated the back, I think I got a bit carried away with the gilding flakes on the background lol.

I'm also entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers: Stamped image
Crafting when we can: mad for markers
Marker POP : Love theme
Seemacrafts: mixed media
Thanks so much for calling by today, 
Claire xx

  2. Miss Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy, two of my favourite fiction characters Claire (after Rhett and Scarlett that is) and what a super job you have done with them.

    Have you read Linda Berdoll's sequels, Miss Elizabeth becomes a real temptress ?
