Lime Citron September Challenge

I love finding new challenges and new inspiration sites, and this find was new to me, and so exciting! They are Lime Citron, out of Québec, and so full of fun products. For those of us who like to scrap en français, the products are great- they are beautiful, colourful and fun! They have amazing and unique stamps and really nice flair buttons, or badges. I really want them all!!

I found this challenge on Facebook and immediately thought it was entirely not complicated, although I'd never played with gesso before. I found some with a coupon, so no big loss if I hate it, but I really didn't. I can see the possibilities... I can't wait to use it again. I have to say my friend Aurélie did a bit of inspiring. We did this challenge together and had a fun time with her sisters as well. 

The challenge requested:
-White background
-Gesso or paste
-Stencil or mask
and a Lime Citron product, they even offered some digital stamps to download!

Here's my take:

On Étoile de Mer (or Starfish), I used some Fancy Pants Nautical and Down By The Shore, some gesso and acrylic paint (don't know about that one...), some wood veneers by studio Calico, some stamps by October Afternoon, some floss and machine stitching... I hope you enjoy- I really had fun making it!
