Purple Wallhanging

Good evening Lovelies! I hope you all had a fab weekend? Our weather down here has been awful over the last week, I do hope it gets warmer soon those winds are brrrrrr!

Tonight I have been playing with Acrylic paint dabbers and distress paints! I've made this Wallhanging to go into the fabulous Hels Sheridan's challenge the theme this time is Purple Haze, I love purple so couldn't resist trying this one!

I used a combination of Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamps love her stamps!

All the colouring was using Dabbers and Distress Paints, the base, I covered heavy card with Eggplant, then lightly and rather randomly went over with a paler mauve, I can't remember the colour? I went only in one direction to get a distressed wood effect, I used a background stamp from the stamp set in purple ink, the rest was all coloured first by pouncing the dabbers onto the card to get some texture then heat dried and stamped, I finished off by using the pearl cosmic shimmer gilding wax around the edge and over the butterfly! I hope you like it? I'm very pleased with it!

Thank you for all your lovely comments, it makes my day xxx
