Betty Boot's New Release...number 1!

Hello again,

Wow!  What a new release for our Betty Boots!  You must must must check out That Craft Place Etsy Shop to see all the gorgeousness but we also have showcase posts by the design team to show off all the new designs.  This is the first of two showcase posts (but I am showing off two more designs with my challenge posts today to keep you busy!  So four, yes 4, post from me today! phew!

So, on with number 1...

Whisper Betty mounted onto a paper mache heart with fridge magnet attached

Fussy cut with a border to add definition between Betty and the background

Isn't she just lush!

Here's the what and hows:
Image: New release, Whisper Betty from the Betty Boots collection from That Craft Place Etsy shop, also available at these links:
That Craft Place - shop full of lush crafting goodies - Challenge Blog TCP Facebook Shop! TCP Natter & and Chatter FB group
Other stuff!: 
The backing is primed canvas, I drew around the heart and then cut and trimmed to size.  I coloured the background with Brusho paints by wetting the canvas and then sprinkling the Brusho powder in tiny amounts onto the wet canvas.  The colour spreads and mixes to give a vibrant backing.
The canvas is adhered using gloss medium (from That Craft Place) and then I stamped Betty Boots in black Archival ink.  
I then adhered Whisper Betty using the same gloss medium (lazy lol) and then coated the whole thing with the gloss medium.  The edges are covered in Cosmic Shimmer gilding wax and then also covered in the medium.  I did put on two coats to protect it.
The flowers are die cut from old book pages and then covered in Cosmic Shimmer mica powders after soaking them first!  Dried using the heat gun (no patience lol) and then I added rolled paper flowers to the centre.  The pearl finished off the flowers.
The heart and the butterfly are punched from the left over canvas after cutting out the heart (hate waste lol)) and then layered up to give them dimension.
Final touches of pins and charms and there you go :D

Here's the close ups:
The layers of the butterfly really show the texture of the canvas, its why I chose to use it

Great pic to show the texture 

Once placed the flowers, hear and butterfly were also sealed with the Gloss Medium

Brusho's give such a vibrancy

Whisper Betty

I left the brush strokes when sealing with the Gloss Medium to add texture, and its quicker lol

They will kill me but here it is on the fridge!  The pic is of my twins, about 3 yrs ago!!! They're 15 now lol
