Crafts Galore Encore March 2017

Happy St David's Day from Wales. Wow! The first of March already, the year seems to be rolling on more quickly now. Probably because February was so short.
I had a wonderful weekend of classes with the fabulous Finnabair. She is an amazing teacher. I shall show you my projects starting next week.

But today's business is a new challenge on the  
Thank you to everyone who joined in with February's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.

Our theme this month is the popular
"Anything Goes"
and our sponsor is

Fabrika Fantasy

I was lucky enough to be able to choose a fabulous image from our sponsor. I love unicorns and have decorated an art board from Bee Crafty.

I glued the two bits together and gave it all a coat of white gesso. I then used a star stencil and texture paste to create a bit of dimension.

I printed the beautiful Flying Pegasus image after adding a bit of shading in a graphics program. I then cut round the unicorn leaving a thin white border.

Before fixing the Pegasus in place I used a few of my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to colour the art board background in dreamy pastel shades.

I printed the words on the computer, cut them out and inked around the edges before fixing them and the Pegasus to the art board.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.
