Inky and Messy.

Challenge 26 over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is, 'Lets Get Messy and Inky'. Now how can you refuse an invitation like that, its a crafter's dream.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
I hope you will join us this time, remember we like to see stamping on your projects.

Where to begin to tell you how this evolves. First of all a plain canvas and cream acrylic paint. Followed by a good spray of Dylusions Bubble Gum pink. Some random stamping which appears like smudges now  in the background.
Out with the masks next, I had no idea where this was going, but by now I had hands that looked like they would never be clean again.
Crushed Grape was the next spray I used  closely followed by a lot more pink.
Now shock horror at this as I am not normally a pink person.
I decided to go well girly and used some stamps by Sam Poole for my images, with a bit of paper piecing for the dress, water colour on the wings and she was stamped on news print.
The textured corners are a mixture of embossed Frantage powders.

By now I'd went searching for a frame and found a plastic false wood coloured one that had seen better days and had been pushed to the back of the cupboard.. A few undercoats later, then out with the pink spray again closely followed by a  light spray with the gold mica . I added a bit more embossing powder to  parts of the frame, not a good idea using a heat gun on plastic, but I managed to get a little bit melted and stuck down.
This is another scheduled post.
I thank you all for stopping by, I realy  appreciate your comments .
