Go With Your Heart: ASOI Colour Challenge!

Hello!
It's time for the next colour challenge over at A Sprinkle Of Imagination!
This month we are playing with this palette:

Gorgeous colours!
Anyway... I made this:
A painty, texture-y (is that a word?!) panel!
I haven't done a step by step on here for a while...so brace yourself, there a few pictures to follow! Don't forget to click on them to make them bigger, some details are a bit subtle so the smaller pics look very similar!
First, cover a chipboard panel with a few interesting textures, and paint white...
I added torn text paper, a die cut strip, and some puff paint applied through a stencil...
I then smeared on some teal paint....
and then some pale lime....
Bit bright, so I knocked it back with a  layer of white...
Much better! I then stencilled through sequin waste with white and lime paint...
Bottle top printing...
More printing, but using lilac paint as a 'pop' colour...
Random background stamping using black ink...
I then stamped a focal point using these Prima stitched circles. The stamps separate to become individual circles, but for this I kept them all fitted together!
I added a little more bold black printing to balance out the bold black stamping...
That's the background done.... now to add the figure, one of my favourite Stampotique stamps...
A few closeups of the detail....
Die cuts make great shapes to paint over!
Puff paint gives great texture!
As the die cut is raised, the stamping (if you're careful!) will only show on the raised bits, a nice detail!
Hope you like it...and I hope you'll join in with the challenge! You'll find all the details on the ASOI blog HERE....
Have a great day!
