Happy Monday and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps May Rubber and Die release week! Today is the first day of Sneak Peeks. The entire release will be available to purchase in the Whimsy Stamps Shop on Wednesday.
As always we will have several prizes to give away throughout this week, but the prize days and locations are secret, so you will have to hop along and leave comments on each one of the participating designers each day.
For today's hop I decided to create a mixed media project using stamps and dies from the upcoming release. The image stamp is from artist Cathy Delannssay - Hymne aux fees.
I used several types of media to create the background...designer papers, mod podge, gesso, gelatos, dylusions ink and some glitter. It was very messy to make this and I do love how it turned out, although some of my background stamped grasses and leaves doesn't show up as well, because I stamped it onto mod podged background.
The main image has been stamped onto copic blending card and colored using copic markers. The little green splashes that you see on the dress/flower petals ended up there on accident when I sprayed with dylusions ink. But since mixed media pieces are so forgiving, I think it looks great anyway.
Here is another view. As you can see I gave the girl some wings by using part of the new whimsy butterfly border die.
Cathy Delanssay, Sun-sational sentiment circles by Raindrop Echo Designs, butterfly border die found in the Shapeology section on release day, and the verse is from an older stamp set by Crissy Armstrong (Summer Garden and sentiments).
