Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team "Anything Goes"

Good morning all.

This is my second post today, you can find my DT inspiration for Imagination Crafts here.

It's time for a new challenge for the Pink Team over at Eclectic Ellapu where Elaine has chosen the theme of "Anything Goes". I've made a small canvas this month.

Canvas has been primed with gesso then texture paste has been used through a Memory Box stencil. I used Fresco paints for the background in Mermaid, Beach Hut and Chalk. Circles die from Memory Box. Flower stamp and die are from Paper Artsy, stamped with Fresco paints. Sentiments also from Paper Artsy which were stamped on tissue. Grass die is from Lawn Fawn and bee dies are from Elizabeth Design Crafts. Finished with some bling in the flower centre.
