Emma Challenge


Emma and I challenged each other to make something in 2 hours. We each picked 2 elements which had to be included. Emma chose, wings and numbers and I chose acetate and metal. I put some GP through the bingo stencil and coloured the canvas board with a mix of green and blue gelatos.


I stamped the butterfly onto acetate in black stazon, cut just the wings out and heated them with the heat gun so they slightly curled and added a mini bulb for the body.


Close up of the tissue tape, grunge paste and script stamping in crushed olive and peacock feathers distress ink.

Simon Says Wednesday have a theme of anything goes this week.
