Just for me

Hello everyone, and a special welcome to my new followers.

Tonight when I got home,I went straight to my shed as I needed to make something just for me, a friend also inspired this.

I am going to enter the page into the Craft Stamper Challenge. On their blog they say this

'Take A Stamp'

 So.....get stamping and entering! You will be amazed at the prize on offer for one lucky randomly drawn winner..... Brace Yourself.... See for yourself here

I brayed Dolly Mixture, Plum , Hint of Mint, Hey Pesto and French Roast Fresco Acrylics From Paper Artsy onto smoothly card.

I stamped the leaves from Elizabeth 01 and flowers from Darcy 09 using archival Ink. 

I worked out where I wanted my girl to be, and rough sketched lightly. I then painted this area in Vintage Lace Fresco Acrylic and the hair in Chutney.

I painted the flowers and leaves with Fribralo Pens by Caran D'ache from Paper Artsy. 

I wanted to stamp a sentiment directly on the page so using Chalk Fresco Acrylic (my go to white) I blotted out an area of the background. I ensured it was larger than I needed so I could blend the edges. I really love the effect and will be playing with this more on future projects.

I used the pens and white acrylic from Windsor and Newton to form my skin tones and added some black pen in areas I wanted more prominent. 

On the hair I used portfolio crayons also from Paper Artsy. The butterfly and sentiment are both from IndigoBlu.

And now the finished picture.
