A quick wall plaque...

Sue Harrington has been over on the paper artsy blog this week wowing us with her beautiful projects. this was inspired by her flower bag..you can see it here

I started off with some grey board and stenciled the circles in opposite corners.Before removing the stencil I stamped into the wet grunge paste.(making sure my stamp had been spritzed with water first) I dried that off and painted it all in haystack/smoked paprika and brown shed frescos.. I replaced the stencil and stamped onto the circles with a tiny script stamp from clocks 1.I added some inky pool around the edges for contrast.

Next I stamped the quote fromHP1204  and embossed it. stamped the butterfly onto acetate and coloured it from behind with paint and TG. I heated it and bent up the wings..when it cooled down they stayed in place.

I continued adding more color over the piece and edged it with black archival, sapphire and a tiny bit of copper TG....

Thanks for stopping by....
