A little messy play

Getting rhythms and routines settled a little now and have a good play when I can.   Over the last couple of evenings I've been getting good and inky with this little hanging.

Masking tape pleated top and bottom of an A5 piece of thick card.   A smaller piece of regular card stock sits in the center with the tape securing it where it touches.   Then lots of spraying with Glimmer mist and Cosmic shimmer.  

While that was drying stamped the Rogue Redhead children playing at the beach in brown Momento and then coloured with Promarkers before being fussy cut out.

Top of the masking tape at the bottom given a layer of Eco Green ultra thick modeling paste.   It took on some of the spray colour helping it blend into the piece.    Using different thickness of sticky pads the stamped images were added.   Finally Viva pastes blended over different parts of the hanging and some of my favourite green and blue lace added behind.

Think there are one or two challenges to share it with.
Gingersnaps - Use Masking tape
Fashionable Stamping - Make it for a child
Little Red Wagon - Include something Vintage
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Land of Fantasy
Victorine Stamps - Lace
