My Favourite Place

Hellooooo and welcome to the weekend!!! After all my whingeing (whingeing, -  moi) about it being to cold to craft in the conservatory, I went in yesterday and it was 31.5 in the afternoon! You know what, that's too hot lol. This is what I made.

These are the Tando May colours. They are not colours that I would usually use, not because I don't like them - I do, but because I am such a creature of habit and I always reach for the reds and the blues.
All the paint used are from the DecoArt Media range. I used lots of Tinting Base on this one!
I painted up the Tando frame then sponged through a Tando mini stencil. I really like these mini stencils, there's lots of room around the edge so less chance of messing up.
All of the stamps are from Crafty Individuals and have been stamped onto an old gessoed German dictionary.
The arches have been painted in pink, I had lots of Tinting Base and literally ONE drop of Pyrole Red to make the pink. I've raised the arches with felt pads to make them stand out of the frames.
I love this stamp, it's an Alice Palace one from CI. They are such happy stamps.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;
That's Crafty - Go Figure
Tando Creative - week 1 colour challenge
Crafty Individuals - Anything Goes.

I hope you have a fab weekend, and thanks very much for looking x
