Sheena Douglass with Pebeo Aqua tints and Stamps

Hi there everyone
 im so late today sharing my samples 
using the brand new stamps from 
Sheena Douglass  

here is the Hydrangea
and the 

 it is the first time i have played with the Aqua tints  and i have to say  they are  beautiful to work with
when the stamps arrived i knew straight away  
i wanted to  do a canvas 
the Hydrangea is the perfect size for an 8"x 8" canvas to give  impact
 i also used the texture paste and Sheena's Stencil of the Eiffel tower
 once it was dry i gave it a coat of white Gesso all over
 then started adding the colors from the Aqua tint pastels set once i was happy with the color blends
gave that a quick blast with heat gun then  stamped in my leaves and flower heads 
i then filled in the leaves with the green from the set  and left to dry
 while that was drying 
i used some Crafters companion water color card
with all the colors from the Pastel set
made some backing papers so that i could stamp then decoupage the leaves and flowers
 the Pastel set  are a little sneaky 
they are beautiful in there wet form but dry slightly darker ....crafty or what lol .
anyway  after it was all dry i used 3D gel to start decoupaging my flowers
 to finish off i added crystal gems to the center of each petal just for that bit of bling
  the Aqua tints are water based so will re activate if they get wet
 i decided to give it a coat of Pearl Diamond  to protect it  and seal everything 
had so much fun with this canvas and Sheena's new stamps

 i will be sharing more sample 
 so please do drop by soon 
 hugs linda x
