Time to "Get Messy" at Frosted Designs

The new challenge is open over at the Frosted Designs Blog and it's time to get messy!!! We would love you to get out your paints, gesso, inks etc and get creating!

The papers, stamps, sentiment and flowers are all from the Enchanted collection, such a beautiful kit and I adore the Kaisercraft butterfly stamps!

I cut out sections of the paper and covered it in gesso, then I added the Tim Holtz Chevron stencil to one side of the larger sheet, and applied clear embossing paste through it. When it was dry I then added another thin layer of gesso and inked around the edges of both pieces with Peacock Distress Ink, love that colour.

I distressed all the edges and cut into the tab printed on the larger paper, so that the smaller piece would slot in and be held in place. The butterflies were stamped in Archival ink and a little colour was added using Lyra Polycolour pencils.

To finish off I used one of the fabulous Heidi Swapp sentiments from the kit along with some of the beautiful Petaloo flowers that are also included.
Love getting my hands messy with inks and gesso, which is fabulous for changing the colour of any of your paper stash, or just muting down the colour.

See you over at the Frosted Designs Blog just leave us a direct link back to your project, so we can pay you a visit.
