Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #114 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning,
Popping by to share my project for our current anything goes challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I challenged myself to a restricted palette and created this layered paper piece.
Not gonna lie it took some time, I would stamp and colour in watching tv with kiddies, then fussy cut everything too. I've used the flourishing hair as flourishing tendrils, stamped in victorian velvet oxide and fussy cut leaving a border.
I have stamped the dinky female faces portrait and 3/4 view, in pumice stone oxides and coloured using pink and red colouring pencils, with a little purple for shadows. As you can see I've only used the fringes from the wavy bunches and the rag tails mixed media templates to frame their faces.
I very lightly drew a heart shape in pencil and stamped a whole lot of blossoms using the same method as their faces, I only fussy cut a few individual flowers and kept bigger clusters to make the layering a little easier.
I added as many of the dinky hands as I could.
The flourish and grow stamp set can be found amongst the background and all stuck onto an ornate frame substrate.

I am pleased to be able to join these lovely challenges...

So much love and attention has gone into this amazing creation Kim, it can clearly be seen. A beautiful colour palette, I always find these self restrictions so difficult brings thoughts of being stranded on a desert island with just one pencil hee hee!
I bet many happy moments were shared whilst you sat around family creating this. Fantastic I love it all but you already know that.
Big Hugs to you and the family Tracey xx

You really need to see the close-ups to appreciate how much work went into this creation. The fussy cutting alone (my bug bear) is both time consuming and hard on the hands! I love the delicate colouring throughout and the 3D effect of the popped up layers. Thanks for playing with us at Country View Challenges this month!
