Fussy and Fancy Challenge #206-"Favourite Colours"

Good Friday morning dear crafty friends!!

YAY Friday...hope you all have special plans for the weekend!!  Well as it's Friday it's time for another Fussy and Fancy we begin a brand new challenge...AND...this time it's my turn to host!!  I just had to choose "Favourite Colours"...I think you all should find that easy...right??!!

Well as I've been struggling lately in the mojo department I decided to go with favs all around...I had one "fairy door" left and thought it would be fun to go with some mixed media and flowers!!  So...

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
my "fairy door" completed...
and how it began..
I stained the door using Rangers Distress Ink "Weathered Wood"...
next I mixed up a paste using Texture Paste, Aged Aqua Frantage and some dark blue glass fragments...
spread it on the wood...topped with some more Frantage and glass pieces then heated with my heat gun...
 the steps were stained using Rangers Distress Inks "Old Paper"...
while still wet I added some Aged Taupe Frantage and heated...
I added some paper flowers, several pink Foamiran flowers and some Cheery Lynne die cut vines...
 finished off with this darling whimsical owl key from my stash...

And that is the final "fairy door" from my stash...YIKES...I really love doing these...time for a shopping trip??!!  Oh and I guess you've discovered that pink and blue are my favourite was my week for them I!!
