GD Simon says - Bright and Cheerful colours

Welcome, creative friends!
and the theme for this week is...

Bright and Cheerful Colours

I was inspired to create a gift for a friend 
and used some delicate bright colours on a simple plastic frame.


Firstly I used some golden filigree self-adhesive stickers for some subtle texture, 
in addition two small homemade mould elements at the lower edge. 
The foot of the frame was covered with some string.
 Afterwards I painted over everything with a chalk finish paint and then highlighted it
with white gesso.

That wonderful 3D texture in the background is amazing, isn't it?

 I love this dimensional effect created
