Room Art

...Many of you are aware that I moved my craft room from my summer house to a spare bedroom as the weather changed due to the summer house not being insulated. The bedroom is slightly bigger and comfy but it is not my summerhouse. I loved it out there in the garden as it was totally My space and held many wimsey decorations and girly things. Many of my bits of equipment was hung from the walls whereas in the bedroom I do not feel able to bang holes in walls etc.

Anyway today I played for a while and then thought I'd create something to hang on the wall to help me feel like it's my room. I had recently purchased some stamps from Chocolate Baroque and thought I'd use one to create my picture. Unfortuantly there are no steps as I got too carried way. 

The back ground is distress ink in lilac, and then edged in chipped sapphire. I made a mask from the stamp to use so that I could keep the image clean. I then laid my stencil on and used a bay wipe to remove some nil to form the back ground. I then used the stencil to add some more colour.

The image was coloured  with pencils.

I also intend to enter this into a challenge at Pan Pastels which you can find here.

Thank you for looking and as always would love to read your comments.
