January Catty Pink your life Whisper friends

Hi Everyone I have a project for you that I did for the 
 Stampendous's  January Catalog.
I Started with cutting the plaque from the foam board what 
I would say is I would use Tando substrate next time as it
doesn't buckle although this effect did add to the piece in 
the end. Crackle paste was used around the edges with
a palette knife.
I then painted the board with gesso followed by the crackle paint.
this was followed by the Prussian blue hue, along with titan buff,
&  phathio turquoise. This was randomly applied along with the 
wax I kept knocking it back until I was happy with the result.
A final wash of quinacridone gold pains grey and ultra matt 
medium (Andy Skinners dirty wash) was put over the top to 
age it all. Translucent paste was put through the Picasso
tool and sprinkled with chunky gold embossing
powder, and heat set.
The pink your life people, houses and mushrooms were 
stamped onto black card then clear embossed and 
coloured in using the prisma pencils.
These were all attached to the plaque so that they stand 
slightly proud not flat against it.
