Harlequin Bouquet by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, today I'm back sharing a little wall plaque I made using the stunning Harlequin Bouquet stamp from the new Florals stamps.
I used alcohol inks and surgical spirit on Yupo paper, if you haven't used it or heard of it you must give it a go it's really unique and fun, it's a Synthetic paper, bit like plastic but not, it means there is a lot of "open time" using alcohol inks, you can move them around more freely to create some amazing patterns, but because of its nature you do need to use Stazon to stamp with.

I created my background and once dry I stamped the stamp twice and cut out the flower heads of one lot to decoupage, I added some white and gold gel pen and glitter glue to add some highlights here and there, my plaque is simply a piece of a box which I stripped back in places and generously covered with gilding wax.

I hope you like my plaque and it gives you some inspiration, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
