Fun CHA Designer Blog Hop

Pin It
I am so thrilled to be representing Stampendous today in my part of the CHA Designer Blog Hop!  I love the products from this company and love they are now the owners of Dreamweaver Stencils!  So let me show you the goodies I started with and see the end product!
Stampendous was so great to send options!  

I started by stamping the images I was planning to use.  I knew I wanted a 3D look so stamped the fairy image several times.
 These are rubber stamps that I attached to a clear handle for easy stamping.  I used VersaFine ink as I wanted to get all the details.

I then started by adding color to the canvas.  I used acrylic paints in a sage green, cream, sky blue and a brighter blue.  I just worked  the colors until I got the look I wanted.

I colored the stamped images with color pencil.  I got so involved with the project I stopped taking step out photos.  So I added die cut trees, dimensional foam dots, glitter and a cool piece of lace for texture and interest.  This is finished project!


And some close up images...


I am so glad that I got to work with Stampendous on this project!    Hope you enjoyed this project!  Keep creating!
