SOC Week 3

WOW!!!
 
Half way through the six week SOC Challenge already.
For this weeks challenge the colours were Lavender, Grey and a pop of Plum.

The colours are fab together.
 I knew that this week was going to be a tough one to take part in and was challenged on how I was going to take part.  Luckily, many months ago I came up with this  creation in one of my,"What colours can I use that I normally wouldn't touch with a barge pole moment".

 
There is a lot of  lavender/Lilac in different tones painted onto an 8x8 flat canvas. Small fleur de lis
were stencilled on in white first and then over painted with plum, well more of a darker purple really.
 
I die cut a larger fleur de lis  from mount board and painted it in similar colours. Another piece of mount board was covered in sticky backed canvas, the edges were distressed with Seedless preserves distress ink and stamped on with a sentiment.
A small wooden frame was also painted along with a rose that had been made using a mould and melt pot.
More leaves and flowers were die cut and coloured along with a few swirls.
it was all stuck down with a hot glue gun and Hey Presto!!
 
Hope you like it.
 
Don't forget to see everyone's entries over at The SOC challenge site they are all fab and I cant wait to catch up later.
 
Thank you to everyone who has left comments on my blog, they are really encouraging and give me a warm glow when I read them.
