Paperartsy Inspiration

Hi all, just popping on to show my entry for the Paperartsy Inspiration Challenge and this week the designer has been Carol Quance and she made two awesome projects.  I was completely inspired by her first project using beads.  Because of the end of year accounts due next week I have been working all the time at home and only had the evening for creating, so since Monday I have been doing the project lol and just finished it about an hour ago, to find we didn't have internet I could have cried.  So better be quick in case it goes again.
I used bora bora and blood orange in the background which
was cut from Paperartsy  chipboard.
I stamped Lynne Perrella LPC004 onto fabric with Archival jet black
then watered down fresco paints claret, beach hut, nougat, rose, old gold
to paint it in, the old gold I used with decoart pearlizing to give it a really
soft sheen with a slight vintage feel behind the head.   Then I went to town
with beads and the little trims took ages and ages and ages lol but
I love it :-)  Before I painted the background I used a mask
with grunge paste then at the end I embossed over the top, I should
be getting my treasure gold next week :-)

Right I better be off or I won't get it in on time.  Happy Bank Holiday Crafting :-) Hugs Kezzy xxx

The face does look fantastic on the fabric. I love printing on fabric and this project is so pretty and original. Really worth waiting for and I'm so glad you had the internet so you could post it. I was waiting to see what you would come up with and this was just amazing!xxx
