Lots of Layers

This week we are doing lots of layers at Creative Inspirations Paint.  I started with a sketch from CPS 

 This sweet image is from A Day For Daisies.  His outfit and the flower are paper pieced and then I used distress inks around the edge.  The yellow layer is torn.  There is some 'faux' baker's twine. I used some CI Paint to paint the stripes on the string.    
 I painted the stripes on the paper with some CI Paint, Green Olive, Pumpkin, and Buttercup.  I also painted the scallop circle with 'Coal' which is an amazing silvery black.  These are the perfect fall/Halloween colors and give lots of shimmery accents.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
