Spread your Wings... Mixed Media

Hello!!!  And thank goodness it is Friday!  I am exhausted after this week of being sick and trying to get things done for Madeline's Second Fourth Birthday Party... whew!  Anywho, I took some time this week to get a little messy and play with the new accents released by Piccolo at these accents are so fun to change and make into your own thing!  Take a peek at what I've created...

Supplies Used:
Art Stencil TULIP LATTICE 6x6 as66002
 Birds & Cages Accents LA130
 Bold Florals Accents LA131
 Enamel Embossing Powder Fluid
 Enamel Powder MERMAID TEARS
 Enamel Powder MOSSY GLEN
 Peerless Water Colors Bonus Pak Small
 Embossing Paste WHITE
 Glastique Finishing Glaze
  Distress Spray Stain BRUSHED PEWTER
 ATC Mini Art Stencil VICTORIAN ROMANCE asm022
 Swirly Doodle Butterflies Clear Stamp Set AF4602

I started by wetting my watercolored cardstock and then dropping in various colors from my peerless water color set.  Once this dried I used my ATC mini stencil and white embossing paste on various parts of the background.  Next I embossed the different accents in various enamel powders.  These enamel powders are so beautiful in person, they have a gorgeous shine and shimmer!  I then used the Glastique to adhere the accents to the dry background.  To finish it off I used a sentiment from the Doodle Butterflies Stamp Set.

I'm so happy with the way it turned out, the colors and everything about it just make me feel good.

Before I started working on this little peice of art I was inspired to do something with birds from The Monthly Mixed Media Challenge:Birds of a Feather, and I'm so happy I did!
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes 
and finally into the NBUS Challenge #4: These accents are all never been used stuff, yay!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
