Inspiration post for Imagination Crafts Challenge

Good morning lovelies! How are you today? Hope you are good! Have you had the fog? Its been awful here and \I'm hoping its going to get better for our journey south later - we're off to celebrate mil's 70th birthday - more of that later.

Today I have an inspirational piece to remind you of the /imagination-craftschallenges which this month is all about flowers.


I have made an A4 sized canvas using the following Imagination Crafts products  - if you click on them the link will take you to where you can find them in the shop:
Daisy stamp - sorry I couldn't locate this one.
honeycombe stencil

I started with a a blank canvas and added texture to ot using the tropical leaf stencil and left that to dry. Then I painted the background using acrylic paints - a mixture of greens and golds. Whilst this was drying I stamped and fussy cut the daisies then used the sparkle medium and swirly background stencil to produce the stems. then added the gold sparkle medium through the hexagonal stencil - once everything was dry I added the daisies and stamped the daisy daisy words.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABACanythingbutacard: Sparkle
pan pastelpanpasteluk - use three textures (Sparkle medium, texture paste, paper)

Hope you have a great day and thanks for dropping by - I will have my phone with me so should be able to comment whilst I'm away but it may be at unusual times! Here's a look at the cake we had made for Bez...


I really hope she likes it! 


Big Hugs to you! Have a Crafty day!
