Art in Bloom

My post this week for the Paperartsy Blog is inspired by the inspirational Sue Carrington.  I started this little Hanging piece by cutting a piece of mountboard using the Vintage Cabinet Die. These are the paints I used.

I painted the background in Elephant, mixed French Roast and Cinnamon with Grunge paste and applied through a brick stencil.  Added some Treasure Gold across the bricks to highlight and stamped with the small leaf stamp from LB02. Stamped out the Tulips on stamping card with Tinned Peas, Very Berry and Blood Orange. Then I coloured the Tulips with Treasure Gold mixed with Alcohol Blending Solution to make a paint (I saw this on TV this week done with different mediums and thought I wonder...........and it did.) Finished off with words and ribbons.  And here it is

  2. Oh Margaret, It's really beautiful!! I love how it looks like a proper garden wall with real flowers, and its hanging in your garden! Beautiful photo!
    The colour of the bricks, everything, and the touch of the branch stamp on works really well!
