Fairy Butterfly Plaque!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  I've had a quiet time with Teallach, but that will all change tonight when Alistair gets home. I think his visit to his brother has been a successful one and Jim is much better.

A wet day today, shame as I've got bedding I want out, but I doubt that will happen now. We had a real big thunderstorm over the weekend, quite spectacular really but glad I was indoors.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last card, you are all so kind, and I do appreciated each and every one of them.

Something a wee bit different today;
 I bought a set of these butterfly MDF shapes a few years ago when I first went to the Birmingham craft show and they have been in my cupboard unused, I thought it was time to change that.

I whited Gessoed the shape and then added DI before stamping with various CB stamps. As the stamps are silhouette I stamped them with Black Versafine and added clear embossing powder.
I've coloured the Fairy's wings with gel pens and added glitter to her. Sequins and flower gems finished the plaque off.
This is a close up .  I've not worked much with MDF and found that it was difficult to add the DI over the Gesso, anyway it's my second entry for the current challenge.
So, that is all for today, I'm now away to see Milo and Rowan, and no doubt we will all have a wee snooze as the afternoon goes on, it's a dull day that makes you tired.

Enjoy your day whatever your doing,
I would like to enter my project into

Your Fairy plaque is just lovely Kate, great use of the CB stamps and the whole scene has a lovely summery feel to it. Great take on the colour inspiration and perfect for CB'as challenge, sadly the last.
