I`m here with my Friday challenge , to show you my idea of a FLORAL FANCY .

I used a White Greyboard panel ,which I first sprayed with Infusions 
to male a airy background.
All the Bits and Pieces Grayboard pieces : 
Funky Flowers, Fairy, and Hummingbird , were painted with white acrylic, and the flowers and bird were run through the Big Shot inside a Sizzix embossing folder, and after I smeared
Distress Oxide over them, using my finger, and 3 different Oxides (see below)

The leaves were painted with the same paint and Oxides, and the tiniest fairy , and bird too.
Along the lower edge I added Texture paste , mixed with green paint , through the Dinky Stencil : Leaves , to add a feeling of fallen leaves . When dry I smeared a bit of Vintage photo onto them here and there.

Lynne`s new beautiful Affirmation , from Set 6 was stamped onto a piece of old book page.
Around the panel I gave the frame a little Vintage Photo, too, and then adhered some vintage lace died with Infusions, and Teal Multi Surface Paint, both on top and button to the panel, giving an idea of clouds and green filed. 

All the bits were adhered with All Purpose Craft Adhesive ,  I created details with a black Fin e Liner, and a white Posca pen .
With the Metallic Paint Pearl I also gave a little shine to the flowers , the bird and the fairy wings .
Looking at my work table, just in front of me were some Hot Glue Gun "pearls" from an earlier work, and they fitted as little decoration for the flowers after having been painted, too .
The last thing to do, was adding water to White paint, and by "hitting " the pen carefully ,over the panel, making  a little snowfall !!

This is my try - I really hope you also want to give this great challenge a try, as we all love flowers, Don`t we !!!!!!

The Challenge runs for two weeks, so plenty of time,-- and as many of you know , by now, there is a great premium of 20 Pound to use in Laura`s shop, for the winner 

I wish you good luck, and a wonderful weekend !!

Hugs and love Dorthe

I too am so glad you posted close up photographs Dorthe as it shows your intricate work and everything hidden within your majestic wall hanging. It's like a treasure hunt with the hidden Fairy so delicately painted and the hummingbird busying himself looking for his nectar.
Those funky flowers are a magnificent display blending in with your background, it's as if you have captured the first frost and given us a hint of the coming winter.
A beautiful display my dear and i'm so grateful you have shared it.
Hugs Tracey xx
