Leave A Little Sparkle

Good morning and happy Wednesday. I'm really excited about our new challenge over at Rubber Dance. Our first themed challenge is 'layers' and here's mine.

I love layers so I was more than happy with this challenge. I started by gessoing and stencilling some texture paste on an MDF plaque.

Then I roughly painted with some Distress Paints in pink and purple. Yes I do photograph them all together so that I can remember what I used lol.

Time for some more colour now, some yellow and orange again through a stencil.

And now lots of background stamping. I've used the bricks and hearts from Textured Houses, the circles from Pick a Number, Vision from Collage Mix, and the circles are from Round in Circles

Time for the main images now. I stamped the houses and bits and bobs from Textured Houses and coloured with bright Distress Paints.

Lots of cutting and layering.

And some acetate stars and a moon to add another layer. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker. It mentions sparkle so I added a few sequins :-)

All done, and great fun to make. So it's over to you now, please join in with our lovely layers challenge, link it up, then I can come and visit.
Thanks very much for looking and have a great week xx
