The Gift Challenge in the Moxie Fab World sounded like fun so I was delighted to get a chance to play along with it today.
I bought some 5x7 canvases recently and covered one with mixed watercolour paints (prussian blue and white) in varying intensities. On my first attempt I tried some stamping but it really looked awful, so on went another layer of paint to cover up the mess! Once this had dried I splattered some white, violet and prussian blue paint on the canvas as well as myself!
This time to try to speed up the drying process, I left the canvas out in the sun. After about 20 minutes I realised it was starting to rain and ran out to retrieve it. I obviously wasn't quick enough as there were some splodges on the canvas but I liked the effect the raindrops had left so decided not to go with attempt number three on the canvas! The letters for the sentiment were die cut using my Cameo.
The fabulous butterflies by Pink Paislee are thanks to my good friends Linda and Trinh. Both Trinh and Linda sent me sets of these beauties recently - I was thrilled to receive two set of these stunners! I added some frosted lace stickles to the bodies for some extra sparkle. To finish I sprinkled gems around the canvas. I'm also submitting this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
Hope you are having a great weekend! It's a bank holiday weekend here so we're looking forward to an extra long weekend.
