Smell the flowers



An 8 x 8 inch canvas is  my project for the new challenge that begins today over at Try it on Tuesdays
The theme is ' Collage with a twist',  and it  must include some  script.


The base of my canvas is a rather busy collage.
Layers of spray paints over masks.
There is even a hand ready to pick the flowers.
I used some grunge paste through a mask at the top right corner. Leaving the mask in place till it was almost dry and then brushing with mica powders.
Next a bit of stamping, mainly Stampers Anonymous stamps on the background.
The final paint spray I used was  a Sprinkys colour-'Antique'  from Inkylicious., this added more depth to the colours I think.





On to adding a bit more interest in the way of some Jofy flowers [Paper Artsy].
 I have realy enjoyed using these stamps, the added bonus this time was that they already were printed with some writing.
I used distress inks to colour the flowers , spiced marmalade and mustard seed..
A little corrogated card was coloured picket fence and the flowers fussy cut before adding to the background .


I will be joining the fun at these challenges as well--
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge which is Ode to Sunshine.
