Getting Inky

This month is certainly racing by and life seems to be getting in the way of crafting but when I came across an MDF plaque that I've had for ages I decided I should have a go at getting inky. First I gave it a coating of gesso and then used Aquamarkers to add a touch of colour before getting out the stencils and inks. I added some Sarntangle stamping which I coloured with Promarkers and then continued with some JOFY stamps. To finish off I added a pearl, butterfly and some Stickles to the hearts. I'm not sure what I think of it - probably because it's so different from my usual - but at least there's one less thing collecting dust in the cupboard now!

and here's a couple of close-ups

I shall enter this in the following challenges
