Surprise party

On Saturday evening OH and I went along to a surprise 70th Birthday party - although we'd contributed to the present and signed a card I wanted to do something else for the lovely lady who's party we were attending...so I made this:-

The base is a canvas which had paperartsy grunge paste thro a couple of stencils and then fresco paint over the top before using treasure gold to hi-light the raised parts. Metal embellishments, flowers, and a "70" cut out using the sizzix wordplay die finished it all off..... I really hope that the recipiant liked it!!

The party was great, live music, dancing and laughing all night - a great end to the week!

TFL xx
