Kraft Plus - April.

Hi everyone,

Another intriguing challenge at Kraft Plus this April...




It took me a few nights and a few layers before I got this finished. That's because I was not sure about how my background would work!

Anyway, here it is...


I wanted to create a black and white swirly effect on the background, like in the inspo picture, but it didn't quite work out! I used clear gesso on the background, then water with black Dylusions and white Mr Huey's. Anyway, it still worked out okay! I also used texture paste layers as well.





 
Use Snippet Strips and Stencil from Flutterby.
Flowers, butterfly and flair from D-lish Scraps.
 
Thanks for looking and thanks again to K+ for another great challenge...
 
Amanda
