I love Dusty Teal too... for JoFY at Paperartsy

JoFY - Jo Firth-Young - was back at Paperartsy this week, sharing some projects she'd made with her limited edition paints and her stencils... and when I got back from Kew Gardens this afternoon, I was straight down to the floor to have a go...

 I think Dusty Teal is one of my favourite shades full stop.  As Jo did, I mixed it with Chalk to cover both sides of the door hanger
 and stencilled some of the flowers from Jo's stencil - so glad I got this the other week!!
 what a mess on the craft sheet!
 used the same scratchy circle from the Ellen Vargo set that Jo used...
my outlining on the stencilled petals is a little heavy handed in some areas, but some of them I'm happy with! I used an outliner pencil from my Inktense pencil tin.
Thanks, Jo, this was great fun to do.

Beautiful - the stencilled flowers are gorgeous, and you may just have broken the camel's back on me "needing" those limited edition colours!
