Magical moments for --Stamps and Stencils.


This is my first project for the new challenge blog 
To get us started the theme is  'Anything Goes'.
Its a mixed media challenge and we have to included stamps or stencils or both.
Please pop over here for all the details.

I started out with an 6 x 6 canvas


Stamped out my main image, so I had an idea of where to place things. 
Glued down some scrap book pages  etc and  some lace bits


Next some washi tape and  a few coats of  white gesso.
Sorry I am a few photos missing here as I was well into the crafting zone
Stencils  [ Tim Holtz] and grunge paste.  A couple of coats of Fresco chalk paint,
 a mix of Snowflake and  Vintage Lace
The main image[ from a Finnabair set] stamped again onto tissue.


A bit of gilding wax over the stenciled parts
 and it was ready to add the  flowers , trimmings and butterflies.






Thank you for stopping by to take a look, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.
