Emerging Color Stamping Technique

Ok, I'll admit it...I really love stamping and the more I stamp the more I want to stamp. It's a wonderfully vicious circle.

She Made Today Count

This is my first canvas EVER!  I was inspired to do this because of a class I took by Christy Tomlinson called She Art.  I have a long way to go yet, but I'm pretty proud of this.  

I used paper from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Collection and just a touch of blue card stock. I had so much fun making that sun.  I painted it and then used some pastels, a pen and a rub on.  

 I love lace and just had to find a way to add it to my girl's dress.  I used a mask and some bubble wrap with paint to add some interest and texture.

 I fussy cut some of the flowers and butterflies from the paper and also used some of the paper to create my "ground".

 I hope I have some how inspired you to grab a canvas and have a blast!!

Thanks for stopping by~
XO, Lisa
