Result with Waste

Morning and back with my second post which is for Crafting From The Heart and we are sponsored by Di's Digi Design.Now I am really delighted with how this project turned out and seeing the result wish I had done it on chipboard and made a hanging.My son was using my acrylics and instead of a palette used a plastic container lid and when he had finished I sprayed the waste with water and brayered onto my card-I heat embossed edges with gold and stamped with Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster and Chocolate Baroque Bee-result.
