Word Play #2

Hello Everyone,
For my second project for the WorD pLaY Challenge at Country View Crafts, I created a Mixed Media Plaque.

 As always I paint up the substrate; this is a piece of chipboard which was covered in Black Gesso then some paint.
 I wanted the words in the centre so kept it White.
The flower has been cut from a serviette and mod podged.
 I used a border stamp and stamped in White Ink.
Marked an inner border using a Black Pitt Pen.
Cut the Key and word on the cricut, and altered with Black and Gold paints.
 Added computer generated words.
Die cut flowers from Vellum
Coloured them in distress stains.
Layering the flower.

Attached the leaves and a little glossy accents.
 Darkened the edges and it is finished.
The Challenge can be found here.
Have a good day,

Amazing piece Sue - the background is stunning and would look good just on its own! The vellum flower is fabulous and works so well with all the other details. Love it! Jennie x

Sue....this is YOUR medium...or multitude of mediums (should that be "media"?)! Beautiful...absolutely beautiful. That substrate is fascinating in itself, and your choice of the 'frame" and the words works so well. Love that flashy flower, too.

From chipboard to masterpiece--truly a work of art, Sue! I especially love the white border & that incredible flower! Never would have thought to use the stains on vellum, but now I will!
