I started with a 5 x 7 canvas base which I covered with Mowed Lawn Distress Paint (lovin' the new Distress Paints!). I spritzed it with water to get some texture in the background and after it dried sprayed some Cut Grass Dylusions ink through a letter stencil. The dots are Picket Fence Distress Paint and then the houses were stamped with Memento ink. The leafy border is hand-drawn with the leaves colored in with Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions ink.
My little lady is made from old book pages sprayed with Dylusions inks, hot pink wire and doll hair. The stamped bottom border was colored with yet more Dylusions inks.
Here's another view of my girlie. As luck would have it the challenge over at the Stampotique Designers blog this week is to use text in a project. Bonus!
Happy Birthday, Mara!
