Fairies or Angels

I don't seem to enter many challenges & never organised enough to make a project that fits more than one challenge, so I spotted this one on Make My Monday and decided to have ago. Not so sure about the colours I used , but these distress inks just sit in my draw and are rarely used unlike my trusty victorian velvet and brushed corduroy!

I gessoed an oblong canvas then painted it with some turquoise watercolour paint mixed with some gesso as I didn't have any turquoise acrylic, then I sprayed it with a couple of cosmic shimmer mists and stamped with a mesh background stamp. some lovely inca gold and sprayed with varnish. The crafty Individual stamps were stamped onto eco board  then painted with distress inks and watercolours and triple embossed with UTEE, so they look like little glazed tiles, which you can't really see in the photos.
The butterflies and flowers are from one of the crafty Individual books and the butterflies were coated in glossy accents.
Just wanted to add this other photo as I was having a play on my iphone and I liked the border effect. LOL!

I have also entered this into the Dream Valley Challenge which is distressing, not too distressing I hope :-D

Happy Crafty & thanks again for all your generous comments. X

I love what you did with all your neat products. My distress ink sits on my shelf most of the time. Maybe I don't spend enough time with it.Your angels or faeries turned out great.
Thanks for the comment on the Madonna collage.

Wow, amazing work. This is the sort of unusual thing that will appear in my cottage renovations, a quirky box here or there. Cant wait to get going....the painting comes first then the accessorising. Looking forward to taking a good look thru your blog and keeping in touch.
