Stampotique Flowers Challenge

We continue with the Flower Challenge this week at Stampotique more details on taking part 
can be found here
I decided to use the Sizzix Heartfelt Journal kit, Stampotique and Eileen Hull are collaborating all through June so check out the makes from Eileen's team and her products here

I assembled the cover and then randomly applied DecoArt Crackle Paste around the edges 
Once dry I stamped the flowers details below and coloured with water based inks.

I strung suede ribbon through spine to create page holders and to create a fastener 

Embellished with some Stampotique beautiful bugs and coloured with Promarkers

Medium & Small Bee
Oodles of Doodles

Stampotique Microscopic Porthole

I cut a chipboard circle and a smaller size with the centre cut out to form the porthole
adhered plastic pearls, covered with DecoArt White Media Gesso, once dry applied Texture sand and allowed to dry

Applied DecoArt Media Acyrlic Quinacridone Gold, with washes of Burnt Umber and Carbon Black
dry brushed with a mix of DecoArt Media Metallic Silver and Gold to highlight.

I stamped the fabulous new Microscopic from France Papillon and cut out, I then stamped the following and cut out and arranged and overlayed the porthole

For the background I stamped Rusted Rivets randomly, and coloured with washes of Quinacridone Gold, Burnt Umber and Carbon black
Once dry I adhered the porthole and then worked Carbon black around it and brushed down to create rust runs
