I painted a chipboard tag with mermaid fresco paint and when dried stencilled black soot distress ink through a crafters workshop stencil. I stamped over the top with the indigoblu anenome stamp in archival ink, then stamped the flowers again on to some blue scrap paper, and decoupaged them over the top adding some green gems for the centres.
The butterflies were a free download I found on pinterest and the small love stamp is by PSX.

I love this Honeysuckle stencil from Imagination Crafts, and have used it probably the most out of all the stencils I have, and that's quite a lot, lol.
The photo doesn't do the frame justice as it appears to be curved, and it's not in real life, it's completely flat.
I'm entering my frame in to Imaginations first challenge "Anything Goes"
I love this Poppy Meadow stamp from IndigoBlu and the sentiment is just so true!
I applied grunge paste through the Crafters Workshop mask and then painted over with lilac Fresco paint, working in some dusty concord and black soot around the edges. The sentiment was stamped out on watercolour card as I love the texture when you ink it up. The flowers were also stamped out on to watercolour card, waterbrushed and then extra layers of petals were added by stamping again on to tissue paper and layering up.

So here's a peek at my gorgeous stash of Hand Dyed Wensleydale and Merino wools all boxed up ready for next weeks felting class WI House in Denbigh, then it's off on a road trip around North Wales teaching in various places, can't wait as it's a chance for me to have a play as well, and lots of WI tea and cakes!!!!!
One hundred and sixty something (lost count) boxes of gorgeous glitzy fibres along with some very sparkly crystals for embellishing the centres of the corsages.
So have pulled a couple of boxes out for myself to play with, well it would be rude not to, wouldn't it?
Am doing a talk at Colwyn Bay WI this evening on crafting so had better get the car loaded up.
