Crafty Individuals' Ballerina Mixed Media Canvas
I made this small canvas using Crafty Individuals stamps CI 206, 171, 347, 235, and 137 and I also used an image of the mother and child from one of the miniature books, transferring it onto a cotton crochet coaster using Dylon Image Maker. I used 7 Gypsies tissue paper first, then added gesso and distress inks before adding my images. I used the same distress inks on a piece of scrap card to stamp the flowers and butterfly. I added a little reinker to some texture paste and then scraped it through a stencil and then added some mica flakes. I hope you like it!
Crafty Individuals have some gorgeous new stamps out here. They also have a great challenge on their blog, the theme for which is Festive Sparkle. Do have a look at the details because five winners receive a stamp of their choice, and you can claim a 25% discount on any purchases you make just for joining in! I think that makes it one of the best challenges on the block!
