Word Play at Country View Challenges

Hello to you all,I am here showing my sample for Country View Crafts

"Word Play"
I have decorated a wooden plaque today, I am planning to cover all the door panels in the house with my decorated wooden plaques this is No 4.
I started by first giving my plaque a coat of gesso,once dry I then used some Inky pool, Sky and Snowflake Fresco paints blending till I was happy with the look

While the paint was drying, I stamped my butterflies onto some card painted them with some leftover paint 

Once these were dry I cut them out.

I then stamped some words onto my plaque using black Versafine ink

I did think it then needed toning down a little,so gave it all a light coat of Gesso

After it all dried I decorated with the butterflies some burlap and roses.

Why not pop over and see the rest of the fab projects from the team.
