Speedy Fox & Friends 175 - Frame It

Happy Saturday everyone!  Do you have fun plans for the long weekend?  The kids and I will be enjoying some UN-scheduled time at our house.   The first fun item on the agenda is Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge.  Our challenge this week is to "Frame It" This one is wide open to interpretation!  To see the awesome projects my teammates came up with and for details on entering the challenge please visit Mark's Finest Paper's & Stamps a HC right HERE.

 I "Framed" my mixed media with a gray Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangle frame.  


I created the background  by painting cardstock "baby pink".  Using Modeling paste I stenciled the flowers.  I added a bright pink Gelato and some gesso.  I spritzed Steel Blue on the panel but didn't like it so I painted over the top!

The butterfly was stamped in Steel Blue and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with a Gelato 

I used the following stamp sets:
