G(u)esso’s Having 20 Winks?

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Rick St. Dennis as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

The gorgeous 20 Winks by Rick St. Dennis has been printed onto Desert Storm cardstock and,as I haven’t used them in a while,coloured with soft pastel pencils.Plus I’d never used them on this surface before.A few white gel pen highlights have been added to just the fairy and the caterpillar’s eyes to brighten them as the pastels were too faint.Altho’ they lay down quite chalky and dusty and also cover the lines a little,once they are set with the fixative spray they have more depth and vibrancy.I quite like how they’ve turned out on this cardstock too 🙂 Rest of the card is quiet simple…just a die cut base with freebie paper and a woodgrain embossed panel of sanded back Whitewash card,pInk ribbons and gems to match her dress and a sentiment.The gesso has been daubed and smeared about a bit.First time I’ve used it!So much fun but think I ended up covered in more than the card 😉 Drove the dog crazy too – she seemed to love the smell of it – weird?! It was pretty handy to edge the hessian/burlap die cut flowers as it held them together.Usually dab a little PVA dries clear glue around them.This way it ties everything in 🙂
