Flora and Fauna with PanPastel UK

Good morning, hope you're having a lovely crafty weekend! We've got a fab new challenge starting at PanPastel UK today and our theme is Flora and Fauna. We've also got a lovely talented new teamie joining us too so hop on over and meet the lovely Doreen and check out the challenge details too as there is a fabby prize of goodies from Premium Craft Brands for our lucky winner! I've made a little canvas for my DT project

I began with a little 8x8 canvas and primed it with Maimeri Gesso, adding texture here and there with my brush Once that was dry I applied versamark through the Pronty Butterfly Stencil and then added some colour with Pastel PanPastels. I used yellows and greens for the background and sealed it with some hairspray. I repositioned the stencil and applied Maimeri Glassy Gel with a palette knife and then removed the stencil and applied a layer of microbeads to the glassy gel. While it was drying I made lots of paper flower with Britannia and Sizzix dies, adding colour with PanPastels and applying some glamour dust here and there. For a bit of extra sparkle I used some iridescent beads for the flower centres

The sentiment stamp is from Chocolate Baroque, I stamped it on tissue paper with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and applied the tissue with Maimeri Matte gel medium. To finish off  I used Maimeri Rich Gold Acrylic paint around the sides of the canvas and splattered a little of the paint on the background

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: summer
Charisma Cardz: sparkle and shine
Fussy and Fancy: things with wings

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
