GDT at Scrapping for Fun

Good morning my lovelies, the sun is shining and I'm a very happy bunny today as on only is this the first of ten days off work but i'm also one of the Guest Designers over at Scrapping 4 Fun! How exciting, I was over the moon when the lovely Rachelle invited me to join them for their new challenge and as the theme is Use a stamp or a digi  was a great opportunity to have a play! The DT and guest designers have come up with some stunning projects so do pop over and have a look.

I've altered an MDF hear using Dutch Doobadoo Brick stencil, Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and a honeycomb stamp from Indigo Blu. Once all the texure was dry I painted with acrylic paint in a creamy yellow shade. The focal image is also by Indigo Blu and I coloured it with Graph'It markers and Inkense pencils.

I've used another Indigo Blu stamp for the sentiment which I've stamped in soft green ink, torn up and added to the background. Next came lots of paper flowers and die cut leaves and a butterfly charm that I painted with gesso and distressed with sandpaper before applying treasure gold. To finish off I've topped the heart with a seam binding bow and another little rose.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

All crafts: anything but a card
Crafting from the Heart: anything goes/use yellow
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Fab'n'Funky: flowers
Loves rubber stamps: Easter or spring
Red Rubber Inspirationals: back to nature
Rhedd and Rosie's: Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown: vintage/shabby chic

As its my first day off work I'm planning a nice lazy day pottering around in my craft room.
Thanks so much for visiting today, have a lovely day and hope to see you again soon
