Good morning folks, my project today is for our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as usual our theme is 'Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes' so lots of scope for you to play along and be in with a chance of winning some lovely crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands!!
I've made an MDF heart using lots of my favourite goodies. I'd actually started this heart ages ago and it had gone horribly wrong so I gave it a coat of white gesso and mixed in a little Magenta Extra Dark PanPastel. This is one of my favourite PanPastel colours as its a lovely dark colour but blends to create a subtle pink. I also dusted over some White Coarse PanPastel Medium for some sparkle.
I coloured some Dutch Doobadoo Honeycomb with Pewter PanPastel and added some scraps of lace and paper flowers dusted with silver glitter.
I made the butterfly by applying versamark to a Stampbord domino and adding more Magenta Extra Dark.. I embossed the word Fly (using Indigo Blu alphabet stamps) with silver EP and added some pearl trim to the bottom. The wings were made with Clearly for Art white film, love this stuff as you can shape it when its warm. It works beautifully with Pans too which actually surprised me as its a very smooth surface. I stamped the Indigo Blu Butterfly stamp with versamark and applied my Magenta Extra Dark PanPastel before cutting the wings our and attaching one to each side of the stampbord. I added some little gems and a ribbon for the butterflies antennae.
To finish off I popped seambinding bow and a paper flower at the top of the heart.
