Kraft Plus Challenge sponsored by Scrap FX!

Hi All! 
Just a little bit excited to be asked to guest design, as part of the Scrap FX Team, for the new challenge blog, Kraft plus. This months challenge is a sketch that I loved working with.
Scrap FX are sponsors this month so I can assure you 
the prize pack will be simply fabulous!!! (a little biased I know!) 
Enough random ramblings here is the Sketch and here is where you can find the challenge details

So the challenge required the sketch and some sparkle, here is what I created. I hope you get that I did use the sketch, I do tend to loose myself when I create so I did get a little off track, but I assure you I did have the sketch firmly in mind!

I had a hankering for a girly page so used this photo (from a recent wedding) of my nieces. Loved the print of their dresses, I did try to replicate the water colour look on the page.

The Scrap FX chippies I used are treated with embossing enamel from Stampendous, just cannot keep my hands off the stuff! 

I did not want a solid gold lump of chipboard so I painted first then added the powder in random places then cut the pieces to spread over the page and create a balanced look.
I gessoed the background and used the random dots stencil to create a little texture.

The metallic sections on the background are created by stamping with a tacky glue then using gilding this look but be warned it is sooooo messy! Those flakes are just so light they fly everywhere....I found myself holding my breath!!!

The colour I created by spreading a little Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays around, using a brush the spraying with water to create "drippage" trying to get that look on their dressses.

Take a peek I even used some glittery bits! I don't get to do that too often with the boys!!!

I attached the shiny bits with gel medium....those little suckers are not going anywhere!!!

So that is about it from me hope I have inspired!!!! Head over to the Kraft Plus blog and take a look at all the other fabulous Designers takes, I am sure you will be racing to your own scrapping corner to  create a up storm!!
