That Extra Special Someone

Hi Everyone

This week over at Mixed Media is the challenge of 
Peach, Brown and Tan.

I started off with a background of a resist technique.  I have used my Lyra watercolour sticks for this project. I stamped out the Heartfelt Creations words stamp in versamark then heat set with WOW clear embossing powder.

I then ran peach and brown colours over the embossing giving a resist look.  I then die cut the Spellbinder Lattice and coloured this in with peach, tan and brown. The circle Dollie is from X Cut and again painted with brown watercolour paint.

The bird is new from The house of Zandra and again I used the same colours.  I then partly cut the tail, beak and feet and used a Spellbinder circle to complete the cut of the outside shape.  Again I coloured the outside rim with peach paint.

The leaves are cut out of Marianne Dies and coloured in.  The words are off my computer and cut out with a Spellbinder tag.  I have then added a button and ribbon.

The rings on the back of the project are from Bo Bunny stamps. 

I am also entering this project into the following challenges:
