Ruby Frou Frou

So today I have done something different and not a card!

The image is Ruby Frou Frou, from this weeks new release at Polkadoodles.

I recently went to the craft show at Ally Pally, (and spent too much money as usual), I saw these fab MDF lightbulbs, which I really wanted to use for a project.

I am really fascinated by mixed media, although I have only dabbled a couple of times and am really not sure that I have got the hang of it, so I pulled on my big girl pants and had another go.

I am so happy with how this turned out, way better than I expected.

I started by trawling through my craft goodies to find some MDF shapes,  I found a couple of dandelions and some tiny hearts, so after gessoing the lightbulb I glued them on and gessoed over those too.

Once it was dry, I grabbed a pink and turquoise distress spray ink and sprayed away, what I actually ended up with was pink and purple, but it looked pretty.

I dryed the ink and then added a touch on white pearl paint and some Shaved ice  ( I love sparkle).

Next I stamped a verse to the side and added a resin butterfly.

I coloured up Miss Ruby Frou Frou with Copics in matching colours and Voila, think I may try this again!
