Pink and Grungy

When just having a play I love to use as many fabulous mediums as possible (just because I can lol).  It gives me a warm feeling to see the end result and also if everything has gelled together.

Just lately my makes have been devoid of the grunginess (quite crisp and neat for me).  So this one is sweet and pretty but full of grunginess which leaves those puddies very messy indeed.

Flowers cascade around the frame, I seem to have got out of the habit of using them but it works for this make.

Printed off the image onto canvas paper as I love the weaved texture effect it gives to the picture.  The frame was die cut with pearlescent card so there is a little sheen showing through.  Stamped the quote with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.  After finishing with the paints, inks and stamps I spritzed all over with dylusions white linen.

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! I also love the effect of all your grunginess (didn’t know this word haha), and all the elements individually (like the key, the little bird and the image stamped on canvas of course) are very beautiful… but when put together the result is delightful!! Fabulous playtime Shirl! xxx
