For the background I used some Modelling Paste through the ANDY SKINNER SUNBURST MASK and when dry covered the whole canvas in DecoArt Turquoise acrylic, adding some Gothic Purple Stazon around the edges and a little over the ridges. Then I added some Glossy Accents to some of the raised areas. For the BIRD - I trimmed him off his base and dabbed different colour acrylics over him before adding some Sparkle Medium in Amethyst through the LONG FLOURISH MASK. When that was dry and accented it with the Stazon again. The LETTERS are also by Tando and have been painted and glossy accents applied. I finished off with some Prima leaves and flowers.
The bird came from this kit... *WELCOME BIRD HANGING*
The masks that I used...these are 8x8 inch and 12x3 inch so a good size...

and the letters...*ALPHA SHEET*
CLEANING YOUR MASKS -When I was at the NEC Trade How in February I got a fantastic tip from Leandra Franich on how to clean your masks if a simple scrub won't budge the gunk on them - spray with oven cleaner and leave for a short while and then wash off! Works a treat :-D
Thank you for coming to see my canvas today, take care out there, HUGS xxx
