following watching Leandra's video on sanding back Tinted Grunge paste I had a go with the following ingredients:
6X6 Canvas board, base coated in Fresco Finish Concrete with Nougat swiped through to warm it up. I then selected the stencil which is Butterfly Meadow from the Crafters Workshop range. I tinted my GP with Toad Hall, Guacamole and Bora Bora and coloured the flowers and grasses in, I then mixed what tinted GP was left and added Mud Splat to make the butterflies and dragonflies look as though they were in relief. I dried this and sanded it back (a butterfly and dragonfly weren't entirely dry at first swipe with sanding block even though they felt warm after drying!)
I then used Beach Hut and Inky Pool on a wet baby wipe to make the sky area more dense in colour and used Limelight and Inky Pool for the meadow floor. I then used Mini 30 with a Blue Versafine to stamp in the hand and blended this back a bit more to give the sky more interest. I then stamped the sentiment from ELB3 to finish it off.
