Pastel 'Wish'

Its the first of the that means its time for a new challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty!
This months challenge is all about using die cuts in your work... so its my mission to show you can still be all painty and grungy whilst using pre cut shapes!
I made this wooden hanging....
My wooden panel was given a good thick coat of gesso, then dried with a heat tool to give a lumpy bumpy texture. I smeared on some pink paint, then a little green paint...
I scraped some puff paint through a harlequin stencil, then heated it to give the texture. Again, smeared paint went over the top! The harlequins can be seen  here, along with my Alphapart letters that also got the paint treatment!
The die cut aspects to this piece come in the form of three rolled roses ( MFT dies). I added clear rock candy glitter to them for a little sparkle..
The flourishes underneath are also MFT dies, and the little dotty leaf fronds are from the Crealies die number 24.
I twisted some wire into loop shapes, then glued them to the back of my panel. I added chain so the panel can hang up!
So, a little more girly and pastel-ly from me today, I hope you like it!
Please pop on over and join in with the challenge, mixed media pieces are most welcome!!!!!

  5. Gosh, such a girly, pastelly hanging.....
    And it's absolutely stunning, of course! This is second challenge I have seen to include die cuts in as many days?! Hmmm....
    I put some chain as a hanging for a piece & wasn't too sure? Now I am & it will stay! Love the flourishes, they really add not only dimension but also makes piece look a different shape? Hope that makes sense, lol...
    Thank you... :)))
