Crafts Galore Encore March 2019

.... Welcome to my March post for
Thank you to everyone who joined in with February's challenge. The winners have been announced on the challenge blog. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. There is a full list of rules on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

and our sponsor this month is:

who are offering a $12 gift code for their online store.

I have made a sweet tag to show you.

The tag measures 6.5"x 4" (16.5cm x 10cm) and is a piece of handcut greyboard. I started by gessoing it in white and adding ripped pieces of old book pages.

I then used texture paste through a Dyan Reavely stencil and while still wet I sprinkled on Papermania Pink embossing powder and heat set. This creates a fluffy, enamelled looking textured detail. Next I coloured the tag with watered acrylics in light green and yellow, and finally, randomly stamped the Dyan Reavely flowers.

The cute image is Fancy Sunbonnet Flowers. She was printed on to watercolour card and coloured with Copics before being cut out and fixed to the tag with gel medium.

I finished the tag with black ink around the edges and some pretty yellow ribbon - thank you Pam.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog where you can see the wonderful projects and cards created by our talented team using Bugaboo images. Grab some inspiration while you're there and enter your "Anything Goes" creations in the March challenge.
