Spring colours

Well that's about it for another year tomorrow life returns to normal if this is the last day of your holiday enjoy it.

Was not 100% last evening so could not prepare this post in advance but did manage to have a good play and decorate this butterfly style mask form.   One little thing I treated myself to for Christmas is a fondue set, perfect for softening Friendly Plastic.

Started painting the form with Yellow, Orange and Blue, the colours of this week's challenge from CR84FN.   Cotton lace stuck to the sides of the mask.   Three strips of FP blue, orange and gold(yellow) cut into small pieces to soften and cut with cookie cutters.   Other narrow pieces made into ribbon and pierced with am embossing tool.  Scrap from the shapes re-softened and randomly added.   Two blue shapes oozed through some mesh and stuck behind the eye holes.   Finally some fine orange glitter pieces sprinkled over the top and the mask then sprayed with gold spray and sparkle.

Fashionable Stamping want to see anything made with our new stash, hoping my fondue set counts.
Pile it on have an Anything goes challenge.

Right off to out my glass head dressed in it's new mask on the landing window cill.   Well someone has to watch the neighbours and I'm not going to.

  11. Wow - this is great, what fab colours Zoe, whenever I see one of your FP creations i'm so tempted to have a go - but the melting would be a real pain for me in my tiny kitchen with not very good electric hob ! Hope you're feeling better..Esther xx
