Hand made/Home made at Try it on Tuesday

Hello  - yes I know, 2 posts in 2 days - just like a bus - you wait for ages and then 2 come together! anyhow,  I have to tell you there's a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday which is Handmade/Homemade, so this could be gifts, decorations, wall hangings , but not cards.
For my project, I made this wall hanging, which started life as an offcut of wood from one of DHs little jobs.
I used texture past through a stencil for the script, raised corner and skirt of the dressform, I cut another dressform  in corrugated card to lift this up. The butterfly, roses, and cameo were made with crafters paperclay and silicone molds.  After everything was glued in place I painted with Gesso I then got to work on the colour with home made ink sprays and some Dylusion sprays, and then highlighted areas with Treasure Gold in Aquamarine.
The rest of the team have created some wonderful projects to fire your imagination, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.
  I am entering this at:
  Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes (no cards)
  The Crafting Cafe - Not a card
  Crafting Musketeers - Anything but a Card
  Craft room challenge - 3D

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it.
