Florrie's Party

The new theme at Stampotique this week is
so Florrie has put on her best dress to join in the fun.

Florrie is the latest addition to my Stampotique family, so perhaps the party is in her honour?

I started by finger painting a piece of white cardstock with some yellow yummy-ness in the form of Art Alchemy acrylic paint in 'pure sunshine'.  This is a metallic paint I bought recently just to try out and now I'm wishing I'd bought more than 1 little pot.  It is so vibrant and the thin layer I painted dried almost straight away.  I then went back and added a little more to create a bit more texture.
I then added little touches of Silk in 'pretty peridot' and 'bolivian blue' around the edges, again finger painting.

It's very hard to get a photo of the metallic finish,
especially as this morning is a bit gloomy.
[Where is the sun that was out earlier this morning?   ..... And where did those grey clouds come from?]

Anyhow, back to Florrie ...... I started by colouring her with Prismacolor pencils, but when I got to her dress, I decided to stamp another image onto patterned paper and so she has a pretty spotty dress.  I then fussy cut Flossie being extra careful with her thin little legs.

Her party hat was coloured with a red gel pen and the balloons were painted with the same Silks mentioned above.

Flossie was given a piece of washi tape to stand on.  All images were popped up on dimensionals.
